RunSignup Releases New Virtual Race Websites and Pre-Race Bibs for Virtual Runners

April 22, 2020

Moorestown, NJ – RunSignup has released a new virtual race website and Pre-Race Bibs for virtual runners to help race organizers put on virtual events that engage and excite their communities. With socially distant runners seeking out challenges and interaction, virtual races have created an outlet for athletes to come together (from a distance).

The new RunSignup Virtual Race Website, RunSignup.com/GoVirtual, is one-stop hub for race organizers looking to convert their existing race to a virtual one, or build a new virtual race. The site includes:

  • Creating a Virtual Race Plan (just like you would for any race!)
  • Promoting your Virtual Race
  • Shipping and fulfillment considerations for swag
  • Virtual Fundraising to support nonprofit partners
  • Virtual Results posting, including RunSignup’s free Text Bot for results
  • Offering a RaceDay experience – whenever and wherever someone runs
  • Creative solutions and virtual event ideas from the community

To add a true race atmosphere to a virtual race (with less shipping), RunSignup has also released a new option for Pre-Race Bibs, allowing a race to customize and setup “virtual” race bibs that a runner can download and print at home – and display proudly!

RunSignup Founder and CEO Bob Bickel said, “We are inspired by the customers that have been stepping up in these uncharted territories to create unique virtual experiences and fundraising campaigns for their communities. Virtual races will never be the same as physical ones, but they are proving to be powerful tools to help people raise spirits and raise money.”
