RunSignUp provides a few quick and easy solutions to enable race day registration.
Race Day Registration
RunSignUp has a set of features to allow different types of race day registration. These tools can be found under the Go Race Day menu under Race Day Registration.
- Kiosk Mode
- Expo Mode
- Registration Closed Message
- Search Participants
- Import (Paper Entries)
- Secure Access/Info Sharing
Kiosk Mode allows you to set up registration kiosks using a tablet or laptop. The kiosk registration is a streamlined registration that gets basic registrant information. It does not ask questions; include a give-away; or allow for teams, fundraisers, or store purchases. It allows registrants to specify that they will pay by cash or credit card.
To get Kiosk Mode running first you need to check the Enable kiosk mode box, then go through the list of options below it to customize how you want the kiosk to work.
Be careful when using the Allow registration through kiosk only feature. Enabling this will mean that your online registration will be closed to all registrants besides those using the kiosk system.
Once you’re done customizing your kiosk setup, be sure to click the Save Changes button.
Once you have saved your settings you can now navigate to your kiosk using the link provided above the kiosk customization section.
When you click the link you will be brought to a new tab or window that you can use on any computer or tablet to allow quick on site registration.
The participants registering will have to enter in their personal information, sign the waiver, and choose which event they would like to register for. Once they get through these screens they will have to decide how they would like the pay by selecting either Pay with Cash or Check, or Pay with Credit Card.
Once the participant has paid, they will get to the confirmation landing page, and if you have enable bib assignment through the kiosk, you will be able to add in their bib number here.
Expo mode is a setting to simplify registrations during expos. Two things happen in this mode during registration:
Users are not automatically logged in after registering.
A "Next Registrant" button shows on the confirmation screen to start the next registration. This will automatically logout the current user if they have manually signed in.
This setting allows you to add in a custom message to participants who are trying to register after you have closed registration.
This is a link that brings you to the Check-In screen for the event your working on.
If you have an event where you accept paper entries, or otherwise need to add registrants to RunSignUp manually, you can do so using the Import feature.
