This has been replaced by our new Email Marketing system – https://runsignup.wordpress.com/2015/01/07/new-runsignup-email-system/
One of the many free features RunSignUp offers is free email marketing – up to 6 emails for each race. (We never send runners emails – that is all up to you, the race director)
We enable this in combination with our partner, iContact. This is a full featured email system that allows race directors to send simple text-based emails, or create beautiful templates with logos and images and custom colors, text, etc. They also have anti-spam protection that makes sure runners only get one copy of your email, and they can unsubscribe if they wish. In addition to providing an easy way to push participant information from RunSignUp, race directors can also upload additional contacts – like participants from last year’s race.
Like RunSignUp, iContact has a wonderful set of videos that provide training and new ideas. You can access them at http://www.icontact.com/resources/email-marketing-tips. Well worth some time to investigate!
