Better Team Results support for Teams and Cross Country

We are happy to announce a whole new generation of Team Results on RunSignup. While it helps improve the previous team results capabilities tremendously, we are probably most excited by the support for Cross Country Results (probably because there are a bunch of cross country nerds working here at RunSignup). As covered in the Team […]

Team Results API

The foundation of our new Team Results, which is used for general Team Scoring and Cross Country as well as Virtual and Challenge events is our open Team Results API.

Team Page Updates

Team pages have a new and sleek interface. They also highlight challenge information, including the total number of miles (or other tally) that the group has completed, as well as the breakdown for each individual (with a hyperlink to their individual results page).

How We Grow Turkey Trots

As we reported in our Thanksgiving Stats blog, we handled a record number of Thanksgiving Day registrations this year – 423,306 compared to 365,618 in 2017. Some of that growth is because we are growing as a company, adding 68 races, and some of that can be attributed to the national increase in Turkey Trot […]

Specific Relay Team Legs & Unique Questions

Coupons for Corporate Team Teams

Yes, that title was intentional. RunSignUp has extensive support for Corporate Teams. This is where a company is typically providing some sort of support for employees, like helping to pay for entry fees, or providing discounted fees to members of Corporate Teams (perhaps because the company helped with sponsorship of the race). Since the company […]

Forcing Full Team Entry During Registration
