We have worked with the Jersey Shore Grand Prix and others to create a very powerful Series Scoring capability in RunSignUp. Here is a link to the video and a fuller explanation.
Series Scoring allows race directors and timers to put together their own point system for scoring a series of races.
For example, the Jersey Shore Grand Prix offers prizes for the Male and Female leaders in overall points across 5 races. Runners get 100 points for first place in race, 99 for second, on down to 1 point for 100’th place. So the winner for 4 races who missed the 5th race would have 400 points, while the person who finished 2nd in all 5 races would have 495 points and be the overall winner.
- Score on any or all combinations of Gender, Age, Custom (like Clydesdale/Athena or Military), and Overall.
- Easy Import of RunSignUp Results that have been synced with RunScore or the Race Director – two of the common programs used by timers.
- Easy Import via CSV, with custom column matching
- Auto-Matching of runners
- If you are using RunSignUp for registration and posting results (many timers make this easy with our integration with The Race Director or RunScore), then runners will be matched on their User ID or Registration ID automatically.
- If you are importing participants via CSV (or where the ID’s above don’t match), there are a variety of ways to match runners – User or Registration ID, Custom Field you define to match, or on exact Name and Date of Birth.
- Semi-Automated Matching
- We will also look for matches that seem close – for example the name is close, the age is off by only a year and there is no Date of Birth, the name is the same, but the cities do not match (like on the right). We will show you potential matches and then leave it to you to say whether to match them and which data to keep.
- Manual Match
- There is also a manual match.
- Participant Search and Report
- Participant Edit – This will edit the information only for the Race Series. You can edit the personal information and it will not change the information in each race – this gives you flexibility to address merges in a flexible way. You can also edit the points in each race – again, this does not change other points to other individuals and just provides flexibility in addressing special situations.
Given the complexity of Series Scoring, and the power of the solution we have developed, let us know how we can help assist you with setting up your race series. Compared to trying to merge Excel spreadsheet files, you will love it!
