Technology for your Runway 5K…

RunSignup makes registration for every Runway 5K easy, sure. But we’re also here with free technology to help you manage your event and race operations from conception to execution. All events on RunSignup include:


Make it simple for your participants to register in minutes with a dynamic, mobile-friendly, and customizable registration platform.

Marketing Tools

Take advantage of free marketing tools like email and websites and prompt work-of-mouth with referral programs and team incentives.


Raise more for your nonprofit, charity partner (or multiple charity partners) with integrated donations and fundraising tools.


Streamline your RaceDay operations with flexible bib assignment, a speedy CheckIn App and simple on-site registration options.

Hosting an Airshow? Choose TicketSignup.

We found that many endurance events hosted ticket events as well. That’s why we created TicketSignup – so you can create your Runway 5K and airshow with the same account, similar UI features, and same trusted company.

Key Features for Runway 5K’s

Flexible Registration Options

Set up the registration path that works best for your event. Customize your registration tiles with descriptions, CTA’s, and banners. With RunSignup it’s easy to:
