RunSignup is a product-led company, and our goal is to create end-to-end technology solutions that can solve our customers problems. We invest heavily in UX to make our registration platform intuitive, but events are complicated and every race director and timer needs a little help sometimes. We recently released a new website full of help resources…but they’re only helpful if you know how to find and use them!
Access Your Events and More…
First up: How do you find your race dashboard? Just click on the profile icon at the top right of the the screen. “My Races” will take you to a list of the races you have access to.
Depending on what other areas of the platform you use, you may also see links to ticket events organization email, organization websites, clubs, and more.
