Whether your race is eerily screeching past October or ringing in the New Year, the fall and winter holidays offer the perfect chance for participants and spectators to get out and enjoy the change of seasons. Races across the country are embracing the holiday season through running, walking and cycling experiences that also offer RaceJoy.
Adding to the fun race experience of costumes and themed post-race celebrations, race organizers are offering RaceJoy’s live phone tracking, progress alerts and cheers!
Each runner, walker and cyclist who carries their phone will have access to RaceJoy’s interactive race day features.
For those family and friends who prefer to stay in the comfort of their homes during the cold winter seasons, RaceJoy allows them to stay connected to their loved ones out on the course by tracking them live on a map view as their blue dot moves along the course. Users can also get updated on tracked participants’ progress with in-app notifications that provide continual updates with pace and estimated finish time.
So, whether you want to track them along the course from home and motivate remotely or brave the cold to greet them at the finish, RaceJoy can help make your race day experience easier!
Supporting family and friends can also motivate their tracked participants by sending fun, prerecorded audio cheers or personalized Text-to-Cheer messages.

There is a now a list of unsubscribed emails for Email marketing. This is available in a report as well as a downloadable CSV. This is helpful if you use other email marketing tools and want to make sure you honor all unsubscribed addresses across various email marketing platforms.
This report is available under EMail Marketing -> Unsubscribed participants.
We have created a new logo and URL for customers with bike races and bike trips – BikeSignUp.com. This means that races will have a nice URL (BikeSignUp.com/MyBikeRace) and a logo that has two wheels🙂.
Any race that is designated as a Bike Race or Bike Trip in the Race Creation Wizard will be listed in the BikeSignUp.com search page – https://www.bikesignup.com/Races.
All races (bike, run, walk, tri, etc.) are actually listed on both RunSignUp.com and BikeSignUp.com. And Race Directors will be able to see all of their races from either Dashboard. For example BikeSignUp.com/BuffaloBikeandRun and RunSignUp.com/BuffaloBikeandRun are live, but the URL and header image is different for each website.
This meets a request from a number of bike races and trips that wanted a bike oriented website.
