Bryan works from his Richmond, VA home to assist existing and potential RunSignUp customers. In addition to helping customers maximize current RunSignUp features, Bryan is always listening to customer issues and working with the development team to update and improve the RunSignUp system. He's a big fan of the RunSignUp mobile timing app.
Bryan stays involved in the running community in several ways, volunteering as an assistant Course Director for the CASA Superhero run each year, volunteering with the Hermitage High School Cross Country Team, and timing home Cross Country meets. He does some running himself, as well, competing in a few 5K to 10 Mile races each year. Outside of running, Bryan also enjoys disc golf.

Fast Registration Options
Use caution to ensure you’re collecting needed information, but within a specific date range (i.e., late registration) it can be helpful to capture more mobile registrations with a simple registration path.
Shared Coupon Report (Share email report with a specific email)
Share a specific Coupon Report with an outside party without sharing additional information. For example, a partner in a mutual promotion or a sponsor who wants to know who uses their code.
Automated Emails (Sponsor Offers)
We have a few automated emails for things like incomplete registrations & RaceJoy. Turn these on to cut dow& on manual notifications sent to runners. Our newest automated email is for Sponsor Offers, which includes the option to highlight your sponsors and the opportunity to create a digital bag of offers (promotions) from your sponsors alongside event information.
Allow runners to register for an event that is (technically) full, without manual processing of payment and data import. You can customize the entries and set specific events, prices, and cutoff dates – this is a great way to handle deferrals, discounts for a specific group, or for a specific team.
Reward runners from previous years, volunteers, or any other specific group by offering early registration…matched directly on personal info, so there’s no password to be shared around.
Quick Multi-Race Access/Editing
If you have multiple races, sometimes you want to switch between races on a single page. Perhaps you are adding coupon codes across multiple races and want to do that on all 4 of your races.
“My Other Races” button at the top of all Dashboard pages
In addition to having the ability to track the inventory on your giveaways, we have a giveaway projection tool that will help you plan how many giveaways to order based on previous orders.
Looking for something that doesn’t seem to fit anywhere else on the dashboard? It’s probably in Misc Settings; for example, for events that are not actually races (like a Symposium!) you can customize the wording used throughout your site.
