Brand Your Website with GiveSignup

Did you know that you can use the alternate URL of GiveSignup.org for your event if you want to take the focus off the athletics (or if it’s not a run at all)? No extra steps are required: with our Single Sign On System for multiple brands, the race you create can be accessed from either RunSignup.com/MyRace or GiveSignup.org/MyRace. The functionality is the same, but the branding is perfect for your event.
