Race Director Go Now Available

RD Go

In addition to the big news that The Race Director has joined forces with RunSignUp, we are also excited to introduce a new offering for Race Director timers – Race Director Go, or RD Go.

RD Go allows any Race Director (RD) timer to simply upload results to the web and provide finish notifications to runners and their friends without the usual complications. If you know how to produce local results with RD, then it will be intuitive how to get them on the web.

We have lowered the costs from My-Finish, and there is no cost for races who use RunSignUp for registration. You can see more information on pricing here.

RD Go is available in pre-release form now as part of The Race Director 2015. We look forward to feedback and full release over the coming month since this is just a natural extension of all of the integration with between RunSignUp and The Race Director of the past two years.

The process is very simple and can be all done within The Race Director without adding any fields. For full documentation, please see here.  Please click on Read More for additional details.

Race Director - ACTIVEWorks Integration

Race Director now supports ACTIVEWorks integration for importing participant data collected there. ACTIVE Registration Center set the industry standard for race scoring software integration many years ago. Continuing that legacy, ACTIVE is happy to announce that Race Director now integrates with ACTIVEWorks in Race Director 2015. 

Going forward, Race Directors can provide access to Timers for downloading participant data and the assignment of bib numbers when used with ACTIVEWorks. The import performance in Race Director is 4 times faster than the previous ACTIVE integration.
