RunSignup Timer Certification

The purpose of this course is to provide timers with training on RunSignup’s registration and marketing tools so that timers can help events with their registration setup and guide them on ways to increase registration numbers. The session also touches on fundraising tools – a key element to most endurance events – and provides an introduction to RunSignup’s adjacent ticket solution. Timers receive a special RunSignup Certified Timer badge and certification status.

Timers – Invitation to Host a Timer Tip Tuesday

Our live Timer Tip Tuesday webinars are a valuable resource for timers. We use these to provide product education on the latest technology, share tips on timer tools, and answer timers questions. In addition, we sometimes host a timer to share their best practices with others and dive into their timing business. We are now inviting timers to host their own Timer Tip Tuesday or other webinar to cover topics they feel other timers or their race organizers will be interested in. Timers can take advantage of this to share information with fellow timers or to help inform race organizers of the various tools and services timers bring to the race.

In addition, newer technology innovations like dynamic bib assignment are bring a host of advantages such as reduced cost, greater efficiencies, and more revenue by allowing registration to remain open even after the gun goes off. But much of this is kind of a mystery to race directors, and this blog aims to help race directors understand all that is available to them so that they can deliver the quality of a big race experience regardless of the event size and budget.

RaceDay Scoring – Old Time Pricing for Today’s Timers

We are simplifying the price of RaceDay Scoring again! It is now a single subscription of $199 per year for each timing company. This is inspired by the two OG’s – Alan Jones and Roger Bradshaw. They set the standard for scoring software and the standard for pricing. Like Alan and Roger, we have another source of income that allows us to invest in building, delivering and supporting RaceDay Scoring for Todays Timers. We realize timers are the backbone of the endurance community and we want to support them with modern software.
