Going Virtual with RunSignup

Why virtual? 

2020 has certainly kicked off this decade in a brutal way. If you haven't been living under a rock, then you are aware of this thing.....called COVID-19, AKA Coronavirus. The virus has taken the world by storm and it's drastically changed the running and event industry....for now. So, what can YOU do and what are OTHER RACES doing to survive, keep their traditions alive, minimize the decline in revenue and, potentially, bring in new revenue.

 

At RunSignup, we've been analyzing trends and transactions since early March and the data is in - virtual races are helping race organizations and nonprofits see a small light at the end of the tunnel. Whether you are setting up a brand new virtual race, converting your race to virtual, or simply adding a virtual option - RunSignup has options and features specifically designed with virtual races in mind.

STEP 4: DONATIONS & FUNDRAISING

95% of races on RunSignup are connected with a nonprofit.

The same is true with virtual races. Virtual runners like to know that some of their registration fee is supporting a reputable cause. Leverage your virtual race to raise funds for your nonprofit organization or your charity partners - keep the momentum going.

VIRTUAL CHALLENGES

A virtual run/race is typically a one goal activity (like a 5K). A  Virtual Challenge consists of multiple activities over time, with either an overall goal or a competition to complete the most of each activity - such as a mileage goal to cross a state or a challenge to complete 500 pushups in a month. For a participant, challenges represent more bang for your buck!
