The Power of RaceDay Photos

Sharing photos directly on your race website brings participants back to your website, provides additional opportunities to boost your brand (or that of a key sponsor), and ensures that your race continues to be discussed in the days after your event. The basics of the RaceDay Photo Platform:

Unlimited Uploads

There is no limit to the number of photos you can upload to your site.

Easy Download & Share

Participants can download images of themselves, or share them to Facebook, with a simple click.

Access Sharing

Upload photos yourself or give photographers access to upload photos directly.


Opt to add a race logo (or sponsor logo) to all photos with stats to breakdown the additional exposure.

Key Features of the RaceDay Photo Platform

Album Control

Create unlimited albums to keep your photos organized and make it easy for participants to view.

  • Select a cover photo for each album
  • Move photos from one album to another
  • Allow multiple users (such as multiple photographers) to create their own albums or upload to existing albums

Photo Auto-Tagging

All photos are auto-tagged at upload by Tagily.

  • Photos are tagged based on bib numbers (for best results, avoid bibs with fewer than 4 digits and common numbers like the current year)
  • Crowdsource tagging and allow participants to tag photos that cannot be auto-tagged

Results Integration

Make photos even easier to find with an integration with RunSignup Results.

  • When results and photos are posted on RunSignup, photos will automatically be posted to each individual’s results page
  • Team photos are automatically posted to team pages (no additional setup)

Participant Uploads

Make photo-sharing a social experience.

  • Allow logged-in participants to upload their own photos to an album automatically created for participant uploads.
  • Participant uploaded photos are auto-tagged by bib number

Photo Moderation

All photos uploaded to the RunSignup Photo Platform (including those uploaded by race directors and photos from race directors) are automatically moderated via AI to ensure that no inappropriate photos are uploaded. Additionally, race directors can opt to require that they approve all photos before upload.
