Moorestown, NJ – RunSignup has released a major update to their race wizard, the tool used by race directors to set the parameters of their event, build a professional race website, and enable the collection of registrations and payments. While the race wizard has been a staple of RunSignUp since the company launched in 2010, the 2018 version includes a new level of user experience that makes race creation easier and faster.
As a race director’s first encounter with creating a race on RunSignUp, the redesigned race wizard prioritizes usability and an intuitive flow that is compatible with mobile and tablet devices. The wizard collects information in the following areas:
- Race details, including the events, pricing, and registration periods
- Race website customizations: select a website template, choose colors, add a race logo and upload a race banner (or pick a pre-made one)
- Giveaway setup (such as t-shirts) for participants
- Payment account creation to collect registration funds (or forward information to an authorized person)
- Enabling of recommended tools such as promotional programs, event insurance, or RaceJoy GPS tracking
While the new race wizard is streamlined to be simple enough for first-time event directors, advanced users with complicated race setups still have the ability to expand options and add additional details to their website and events. Race directors can opt to publish their race website instantly or set it in draft mode so that only they can see it while they finalize the details.
The race wizard allows a race director to get their race website live in a matter of minutes, but more customizations –pricing features, promotional tools, fundraising setup, RaceDay kiosks, and full CRM and participant management options – are all automatically available from the race dashboard any time after creation.
