Timer CollaborationHow to work with your Timer

Ask any race director, and they will say the most important person they work with is their timer. Working together with your timer, you can enhance the experience for the runners in your race. There are several ideas that we have seen race directors and timers implement with RunSignUp recently:

Participant Sharing – Race directors can now allow their timer to have access to participant information. If the timer uses RunScore or Race Director, they can download participants with the click of a button. They can even upload race day participants and changes. This keeps race directors and timers in sync.

Results Posting – Race directors can also allow their timers to post results on RunSignUp. Again, most timers use either Race Director or RunScore for their timing software. These systems can easily upload results for easy search and display.

Results Notifications – If timers have Internet access at the race, they can continually post results online. Coupled with Notification support, runners can get a TXT or EMail of their results sent directly to them as soon as they are posted.

iPad KioskKiosks – Through proper planning with your timer, you can implement kiosks that allow both registration and results searching. And you can extend this to enabling every runner’s smartphone to do race day registration and result searching with things like QR codes on bibs.

Remember, the timer-race director partnership can help make your race special!
