He also spearheaded technological advancements within the company, becoming an expert user of RunScore, and contributing to the deployment of a cloud-based scoring and results system encompassing more than a million results since 2010.

In his new role at RunSignup, Larson will be an integral part of the Account Management team, focusing on assisting current timers and onboarding new timers with RunSignup’s RaceDay products. Larson will also focus on collaborating with various industry timing technology partners integrated with the RunSignup registration platform. He will also adopt a hands-on approach by actively participating in races nationwide to provide on-site guidance and gather valuable real-world insights for RunSignup’s RaceDay development team.
