Thank You Crisp McDonald

There is probably no other timer who has helped more timers in the past 6 years you have been on the RunSignup team. Thank you for your dedication to the endurance community.

In every journey, there comes a time for change, a moment to bid farewell to a familiar face who has contributed immensely to the path we’ve walked together. Today, we extend our heartfelt gratitude and best wishes to Crisp McDonald, a cornerstone of our timing community, as he transitions from his role at RunSignup to dedicate more time to his thriving timing business, Go Race Productions.

For many years, Crisp has been at the center of our efforts to empower timers with technology. Throughout that time he has provided unwavering support, shared invaluable knowledge, and been a resource timers have grown to rely on. His dedication has left an indelible mark on our company and the broader race community. As we prepare to say goodbye, it’s important to reflect on the impact he’s had and express our deepest appreciation for his tireless commitment.

Timer Education

Crisp has been a foundational factor in our efforts to create such unique timer-focused products and education for the industry. Serving as a key figure in our education initiatives, he hosted countless Timer Tip Tuesdays, offering insights, best practices, and guidance to timers across the nation. He also was a central resource in building RunSignup’s Timer Certification program to help provide deeper product education for timers. With about 100 episodes on our YouTube channel, his legacy of knowledge-sharing will continue to resonate long after his departure.

Face in the Industry

Beyond virtual media platforms, Crisp has been a familiar face at conferences, symposiums, and roadshows, captivating audiences with his expertise and passion for timing. His contributions to our certification programs have equipped timers with the skills and confidence to excel in their craft, leaving an enduring impact on the industry’s future.

Superior Support and Troubleshooting

However, Crisp’s impact extends far beyond the stage or screen. He has been a pillar of support for timers navigating the complexities of race weekends, offering guidance, troubleshooting, and reassurance during early mornings and late nights. Many times he was training and supporting timers that were in competition for his Go Race Production business that he maintained on the side. Yet, he did not let that deter him. His dedication to our customers’ success has been unwavering, reflecting his genuine care and commitment to their success.

Go Race Productions

As Crisp embarks on this new chapter of his journey, we wholeheartedly congratulate him on the success of Go Race Productions. We are sure many will miss Crisp’s can-do spirit and expertise, but know that he will still be around at the various industry conferences and events. Races seeking a timer can feel confident that they are in good hands with Crisp and his team of timing professionals. Crisp knows how to put on a quality race and is fully and deeply knowledgeable in the technology available at RunSignup.

You’ll notice his company has all four timer certifications in our timer search.

Thank You, Crisp

We want to express our deepest gratitude to Crisp for his years of service, leadership, and friendship. His impact on our company and the timing community will be felt for years to come. He is also a valued customer of RunSignup and one of our most prominent timers who makes full use of our technology. As he embarks on this next stage, we wish him every success. We are confident that his journey will continue to inspire and uplift all those fortunate enough to cross his path and we look forward to continuing to work with him in the years to come.

Thank you, Crisp, for everything you’ve done. Your presence will be deeply missed. But I expect you to call me from time to time to tell me what we need to do differently. We can’t let things change that much!
