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

RaceDay Registration

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

RaceDay CheckIn

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

RaceDay Results

  • Make results more accessible on site with leaderboards and kiosks
  • Send results notifications via email and text and connect results with RaceJoy

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
