We are excited to share that events are now able to issue Virtual Bibs to participants for traditional and virtual events. These pre-race bibs are an effective way to communicate bib numbers and add another tangible component for virtual event experiences. Participants can share their official bib on social media, which in turn helps promote […]
When doing the assignment of bib numbers at one time, we now show a message with the last bib number assigned. This is useful if trying to assign bibs to a 5K and then to a 10K and you want to use them all consecutively.
We have added the capability to clear Group Bib Numbers in addition to the clearing of individual bib numbers.
We have added an option to assign bibs based on age: This would assign bibs to all of the people in the youngest age year alphabetically by last name and then first name. Then it would go to the next year in age and sort those. For example:
While you can show Group and Individual Bib numbers in a Participant Report, the Group/Team report did not contain both. Now it does.
We now show the counts of tagged/untagged photos as they are uploaded and auto-tagged or manually tagged. You can now view the count on the initial page load of the Advanced Mode editor:
The Manual Bib Assignment tool now has several sort options:
When races use the option to automatically assign bibs, we now offer an option to either reuse or not reuse bibs that have been assigned, but the participant is removed from the event. The option is on the RaceDay Go -> Bib Validation page:
We have added Avery 5195 as a new supported bib label print output. Remember to do a test and make sure you print at 100% scale.
Our great bib labeling tool just got a bit better. You can now sort by Registration Date as well as Registration ID. This is useful for getting the labels for the most recently added people on the last page of the bib print out. For example if you per-labeled all of your bibs, but are […]

You can send feedback to info at runsignup.com. Architecture We are building this as an HTML5 app that will run […]
We have added Bib Validation. You can set up ranges of bibs that are valid for each event. This prevents handing out the wrong bib to the wrong person, and also helps with issues around runners moving from one event (5K) to another (10K). This is used in conjunction with the RunSignUp Go Race Day […]

A small new feature, but worth documenting that you can now remove all bib numbers from either an Event or all Events in a Race.

We have had some reports of people having trouble printing off bib labels and making them fit the label paper. The page is formatted to be printed at 100% scale. The problem is if you have a printer setting that does auto-scaling. Here are a bunch of different printer setups so you can see how […]
As part of our RunSignUp Go race day efforts, we have made a large set of improvements to our Bib Assignment and Check-In capability. (We have more recently added a Chrome App that allows local label and receipt printing and a native Apple and Android app. Check-In is used in a wide variety of cases […]
RunSignUp Go is a strategic effort to help bring race day together for race directors and timers. RunSignUp Go provides an open platform to connect the various parts of race day. This means existing tools and technologies can be tied together, and there is choice and freedom to add and change vendors – whether for […]
Some team races will have a single bib number for the entire team. For example a Triathlon Relay team may all share the same bib number. One of the setup options in RunSignUp Teams is for Bib Numbering. This is in addition to the normal bib options in RunSignUp so that participants can be assigned […]
We are getting more and more races using our race day registration services. Here are a couple of races that used our service last weekend. The Graffiti Run used the check-in capability to check in over 5,200 runners this past weekend. They had 10 Chromebooks with volunteers doing the check-in. They felt they could have […]
Has your race ever had to use non-consecutive bibs to hand out to runners? For example you have bibs 1001-1500, but you have more than 500 runners. Now RunSignUp let’s you add multiple ranges to do bib assignment. In this example int he video we added bibs starting at 2501 after the first 500 are […]

From the beginning, we have been focused on trying to make it easier for race directors and timers to work together. Recently we have made some major progress in this area by making it easy for timers to download participant information and upload results. One of the issues is how to handle security. In some […]
As another part of our big Results project, we are enabling multiple ways to assign bib numbers. This is not currently released, but we wanted to give our race directors and timers a preview.
