Creating a Group

Once you have arrived at the "New Group/Team" section, whether during or after registration, the steps you will go through to create a group are similar.

Group Type

First, “Select a Group Type” from the drop down menu. A "group type" designates a specific type of group that the race director allows registrants to create, and the details pertaining to each group type will appear as you select each one from the list. Group types may be very basic and all-inclusive or specific to age, gender, and/or size.

Select Group Type

If you would like to learn more about why certain group type options and restrictions are set up, then please contact the race directly for more details, as explained in the beginning of this tutorial. (by going to the race page, scrolling down to the “Race Contact Info” section, and filling out the “Questions” form).

Group/Team Name

Next, enter your "Group/Team Name" into the text box provided. This name can be anything you would like, though it will be displayed on all group/team pages, so please make sure it is appropriate for all race participants.

Add Group Name

Gender Restrictions

If there is a "Gender" requirement associated with this team type, then you can select one of the options available to you.

The possible options are "Coed", "Male", and "Female", though you may not see all of these listed, as the race director decides which type of groups can be created with this team type.

Please note that the "Gender" selection menu is not asking whether you are a male, female, or coed. This section is to designate which gender or genders will be eligible for joining your team.

If you have made a mistake in filling out the "Gender" field, then please contact the race directly, in order to have your team changed to "Coed". Keep in mind though, some team types are restricted to allow only "All Male" or "All Female" teams. This decision is made by the director of each individual race, and is commonly set up this way for scoring purposes.

Age Group Selection

If there is an "Age Group" option associated with this team type, then you can select the one that suits you from the drop-down menu. If there is no age group set up that includes your age, then you cannot create a group of this type, and you will need to select a different "Group Type".

If necessary, please contact the race directly for questions regarding their "Age Group" set up. This can be done from the race page, by going to the “Race Contact Info” section, and filling out the questions form.

Select Age Group

Group/Team Password

When creating a group, you may also have the option to set up a password needed for joining that group. To set the password for your group, then click on "Set Password" and enter it into the text box provided. Also, make sure that you write down or memorize your password.

Add Group Password

In the case of a forgotten or unknown team password, please refer to the section for "How to Edit a Group Password".

Saving a Group

If you are creating your group during the registration process, then make sure all of your group settings are correct, and click "Continue" to move on with registration.

Once you have completed the registration process, your group will be created.

If you leave the registration process before completing your transaction at the checkout, then the group will not be created.

Please note that if you are registering multiple people at once, then you will need to go to each registrant on the transaction and select which group they will be joining. RunSignUp will not assume that each additional registrant will be assigned to the same group as the first person who joins a group.

Continue

You will notice that any participants assigned to a group will have the group name next to the event that they have selected to register for, and it will say “No Group/Team Selected” for those who are not yet assigned to a team.

To simply join the same group as another registrant, open up the “Group/Team” window, and select the group from under the “Groups for Other Registrants” section.

If you are creating your group after the registration process, then make sure all of your group settings are correct, and click on "Create & Join New Group/Team".

Please note that some races may require you to pay in order to create a group. In these cases, fill out your "Credit Card Payment" information, and then click on "Create & Join New Group/Team". If you have a question about the group setup fee, please contact the race directly, by going to the race page, scrolling down to “Race Contact Info” section, and filling out the “Questions” form.
