Using the RaceDay Technology Suite

Like all RunSignup tools for endurance events, the RaceDay technology suite is an open set of tools, meaning you can use all the ones that are right for your event without being contractually obligated to use them all. While many of the tools are available to both race directors and timers, make sure you always discuss your race day plans with your timer to ensure a seamless event.

RaceDay Technology Suite

Maximize registrations with user-friendly on site registration options.

  • Go paperless and offer speedy registration on dedicated devices at your expo or packet pickup with On Site Registration that auto-logs out each registrant after they pay with card or cash
  • Provide more last-minute options by leaving online registration open until the gun goes off – and create signage with QR codes and easy-to-use quick text links to allow participants to skip the registration line by registering on their own mobile devices
  • Keep race morning moving with instant data syncing between registration, the CheckIn App, and RaceDay Scoring

Take advantage of everyone’s favorite RunSignup tool, the RaceDay CheckIn App, to create a better race experience.

  • Check in participants in seconds through a QR code scan or intuitive search
  • Customize the information that shows in the app to ensure your volunteers have the exact data they need and prevent mistakes by limiting their access to make changes
  • Check in participants and volunteers within the same app
  • Sync data to RunSignup to ensure up-to-the-minute participant lists and bib assignments

Keep participants happy with comprehensive results that are searchable and dynamic.

  • Publish results to a dedicated Results page on your RunSignup dashboard via a variety of sources, including a direct upload from RaceDay Scoring, a CSV upload, a Dropbox upload, or a preformatted upload
  • Quickly load searchable results that can be filtered by division, and customize your results display to show or hide specific data points like age or city
  • Make results more accessible on site with leaderboards and kiosks
  • Send results notifications via email and text and connect results with RaceJoy
  • Virtual results platform also available

Clean data is the key to accurate results. Start off on the right foot with built-in bib management tools.

  • Set bibs to assign automatically at registration, in bulk after registration, or dynamically at bib pickup
  • Easily send out emails to participants with their bib numbers (if assigned in advance) or a unique QR code for check-in (if assigned dynamically)
  • Sync across RunSignup for timing, scoring, check-in, and accurate registration records
2.4% of 2022 Registrations Were On Race Day
2.6 Million Participants Were Checked In with the CheckIn App in 2022
78% of Timers Offer Services Beyond Timing

Cultivate FOMO and bring runners back to your site with race photos stored directly on your race website.

  • Upload unlimited photos into customizable albums to allow for easy downloading and sharing to Facebook
  • Auto-tagging of photos via Tagily to ensure participants can find their photos
  • Tagged photos automatically show on individual results pages and within team pages
  • Add a watermark to photos for your race or your sponsor
  • Allow participant uploads to get everyone engaged in the photo game

Take timing to the next level with RaceDay Scoring’s next-generation scoring solution.

  • Compatible with all major chip systems, including MYLAPS, Chronotrack, RFID, Race Result, and more.

Certified Timers can setup and provide RaceJoy runner tracking to your participants.

  • Easily monitor participants on course, volunteers, and key race staff
  • Improve safety with SOS alerts, off-course alerts, and turn-by-turn directions
  • Create a custom audio experience for a more dynamic event

Organize your participants and keep your race day flow intuitive with a build-in corral management tool.

  • Syncs with the entire RunSignup platform for scoring, timing, check-in, and personalized emails
  • Set to assign automatically by estimated finish time at time of registration, assign later, or upload assignments via CSV
  • Built-in tools to help you estimate and build your corrals
