Convenient Access to Race Information
RaceJoy has recently released new content capabilities for race organizers providing the ability to add custom content in three key areas:
- General Race Information
- Schedule of Events
- Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
All are self-administered by the race and edits can be made at any time through race day. Content is flexible and can include links to websites, videos, images and text.
Race Info Page
The general race content area is an ideal location for key race information like the history of the race and important information related to the race, such as parking and start times. This is also a great place to showcase a sponsor’s logo.
Schedule of Events
The schedule section is helpful for people to quickly see the events that are going to take place such as the expo, packet pickup, pasta party, and the awards ceremony. Each scheduled event includes its location so that users can use their phone’s navigation system to get where they’re going with a single click.
Adding the most important frequently asked questions about the race helps alleviate the support required by the race and provides added convenience for participants and spectators.
Releasing these three areas of customization is part of RaceJoy’s overall strategy to provide a more tailored mobile experience for each race and to bring added convenience to participants and their supporting friends and families before, during and after the race.
I love the app. I think it is seriously an awesome feature and I’m happy we were able to collaborate with you on enhancing our offering to those involved in this event. – Justin S., Scranton Running Co.
Race organizers self-administer these content areas from the RaceJoy dashboard with an easy-to-use administration tool. The three custom content areas are in addition to the existing customization components available to races, which currently include race logo, linkable banner ads, interactive customizable course maps, GPS-based progress alerts recognition, and user social media posts. Races also can add custom geo-cheer points on the course as an element of gamification or guidance.
Visit your RaceJoy dashboard to get started customizing your event! Not RaceJoy Ready? It’s easy. Just check out our website here to add your race or enable RaceJoy through your RunSignUp dashboard. We require a minimum two-week lead time prior to the date of your race and an electronic version of your course map (KML/GPX format preferred).
