RunSignup will leverage its industry expertise to support the largest online community of race management professionals
Race Directors HQ, the online resource and community network for race directors, is delighted to welcome RunSignup, the leading technology provider for races in the US, as an official community partner for the Race Directors Hub, Facebook’s largest online community of race directors and race management professionals.
Launched in October 2017, the Race Directors Hub has quickly grown into a thriving forum where endurance industry professionals can share resources, build relationships and learn from each other’s experiences. In keeping with their philosophy of open technology, RunSignup will be bringing to the Hub interactive content and years of industry expertise to encourage organic conversations to continue to flourish within the group.
RunSignup Founder and CEO, Bob Bickel, said, “As an individual, I have participated in the Race Directors Hub for some time, and have been impressed with the discourse amongst professionals. We’re looking forward to providing more resources and watching the group grow and prosper.”
Race Directors HQ editor, Panos Gonos, commented, “Whereas Race Directors Hub has always been and will remain an open forum for the entire industry, we are particularly excited to have RunSignup, who have consistently enjoyed very high approval among our race director members, join the Hub as community partner. We can’t wait to get started learning from each other.”
RunSignup and Race Directors HQ will soon be announcing dates for the RunSignup Social Learning Series, an educational webinar series for race directors to be broadcast in the Hub, kicking off on Tuesday 26 February with a live presentation of the latest industry statistics on race participation, growth and retention from RunSignup’s flagship RaceTrends annual report.
