Your Own URL for RunSignUp Race Websites

Farragut HalfThere are several ways to make use of the new RunSignUp Race Websites with your own URL, and we will be introducing more over time. If you do not have a URL, then you can use the Short URL capability in RunSignUp to set up a URL like “RunSignUp.com/MyRace”.

The Farragut Half Marathon (http://www.farragut131.com/) has used another method. They have a real website and the ability to put up a simple HTML page. NOTE: You should also get an SSL Certificate for your website so your user’s browsers know it is a safe site and has an https:// before the website. They put the RunSignUp site into their home page with a simple HTML capability of putting the RunSignUp Race Website into a frame. Here is the HTML:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN”
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd”&gt;
<html>

<head>
<title>Farragut 13.1, 5K and Kids Mile </title>
<META name=”description” content=”Knoxville Track Club’s fall half marathon”><META name=”keywords” content=”race, half-marathon, awards, bling, KTC”>
</head>

<frameset rows=”100%,*” border=”0″>
<frame src=”http://runsignup.com/Race/TN/Knoxville/MarbleCity1315KKidsMile&#8221; frameborder=”0″ />
<frame frameborder=”0″ noresize />
</frameset>
