- Handle any volume of registration traffic: Avoid slow registration — or worse, a system crash — at the opening of registration for your popular race. RunSignUp can handle 50,000 registrations in just 7 minutes. Watch the backend infrastructure and what the runner sees at the opening of the sellout Murfreesboro Half Marathon, and see the real-time map of the opening of the Philly 10K.
- Customizable, self-service option for refunds, transfers, and waitlists: Participant Management for a large race can be an unwieldy and lengthy process. RunSignUp streamlines the steps, allowing the Race Director to set parameters for runners to manage their own requests for refunds and transfers, and manage waitlists for sellout races.
- Registration directly on your site: Improve the registration experience for your runners with a simple, customizable widget that allows them to register without leaving your website. See some examples of registration widgets on Race Websites, and learn how easy it is to set up your own Widget with one line of code.
RunSignUp's Large Race capabilities were designed for, and with the collaboration of, many of the races we work with.

More Services for Large Races
- Multi-Day Races: RunSignUp makes it easy to offer multiple races, on multiple days. You can include all your events together to make it simple for runners to sign up, and for Race Directors to access reports.
- Super and Sub Events: Super Events, in which multiple races are packaged as one, allow the Race Director to see registrants of multiple events as both a single registrant, and a participant of multiple events. On the other hand, you can use Sub Events to separate your runners and create effective race waves for Large Races.

- Loyalty Program for Priority Registrants: Reward previous participants with early access to registration. Use a simple list upload and set your events to be open only to those participants. See the setup and results of the Loyalty Program by the Boilermaker Road Race. Want other ways to provide rewards in registration? Offer Credit Card Discounts, or thank your Sponsors or partners by providing an Affiliate Discount. See how the Space Coast Marathon uses the Loyalty program to phase registration over a few days.
