March 9, 2016 – RunSignUp has partnered with iTaB to make it easy for Race Directors to offer runners a personalized race medal. Race Directors can elect to seamlessly add iTaB as an add-on in the RunSignUp registration process, providing them with an opportunity to enhance their race at no additional cost to the event.
iTaB is a small plate that is typically engraved with the runner’s Name and Finish Time, and fits neatly into a recess on the back of the Finisher Medal as a personalized tribute to the runner’s accomplishment. Through their partnership with RunSignUp, Race Directors can follow a simple set of instructions to include the iTaB option in runner registration. In return, the Race is able to differentiate themselves and offer a value service to runners at no risk or cost to the event – in fact, races earn a commission payment on each iTaB sold.
RunSignUp, the leading innovator of online tools for race registration, promotion, and race day solutions, has a robust Technology Partner program to connect their customer base with services beyond the scope of their software. Founder Bob Bickel said “We are pleased to partner with iTaB to offer Race Directors another service to reward their runners and make their event a truly unique experience. Adding the option to registration makes it seamless for the runner, with no re-directs or duplication of data entry.”
Race Directors interested in offering iTaB can add it to their RunSignUp setup via these step-by-step instructions.
