Optional Certification for Timers
Tuesday is for race timers who want to be certified in RaceDay Scoring and/or RaceJoy. Pre-registration for the certification is separate from the symposium registration and is required. Timers who have previously completed the certification training are welcome to attend for a refresher.
RaceDay Scoring Certification
This online training is for timers who wish to become RaceDay Certified and trained in RunSignup’s flagship scoring software. This is basic training on RaceDay Scoring. Access to a computer and Internet throughout the session is required.
This online training is for timers who wish to become RaceJoy Certified in order to provide RaceJoy to their event or for existing RaceJoy Certified timers who wish to get a refresher. This session will focus on how timers can offer RaceJoy for hybrid races, including on-site timed events with defined courses and race anywhere virtual events. Access to a computer and Internet throughout the session is required.
Wednesday officially kicks off the GiveSignup l RunSignup summer symposium with a state of the industry session followed by fundraising focused tracks. Most all events include a fundraising component. So, make sure to attend and invite your races to join these sessions.
