RunSignup | GiveSignup’s Philosophy on Data

We feel strongly that the data collected for your event is YOUR data.  Data is valuable and too many web platforms reuse, market to and claim your data for themselves.  We protect your right to your own data and only use it to provide our services to you.

Easy Data Export

We have a comprehensive reporting and analytics infrastructure allowing you to do everything from analyzing Year-over-Year trends for your event to drilling into the specifics about your supporters.  Our reports have all the bells and whistles: search, filter, save as, graphical representations, rename column headers and of course export.  As an example, our Participants Report gives the event director the power to report on over 80 data elements.  Export options include CSV, Google Sheets, Microsoft Excel, PDF, Mailchimp, Dropbox, Hy-Tek,, Build Bib Labels.

The impressive set of export options

Open API

The RunSignup | GiveSignup API is open and allows the running and events community to use RunSignup & GiveSignup data with many other services such as timing, results and other websites.  “Open” means it is free for unrestricted use under the Apache license.  Using our API is a great way to build accurate and real-time integrations utilizing RunSignup | GiveSignup data.

GiveSignup Zapier App

API’s provide powerful and flexible ways to interact with RunSignup | GiveSignup while still taking advantage of the same logic that is built into the application.  For example, when a developer calls Get Race Participants you can be sure that the access controls built into the application are being honored, and only data accessible to that caller (such as the race director) will be returned.  But building integrations with APIs requires a technical expert with programming skills, and not every organization has those capabilities.  

Zapier is an integration platform that simplifies integrations.  The RunSignup | GiveSignup Zapier app provides a wrapper around RunSignup | GiveSignup’s API and presents the user with a drag and drop interface to map RunSignup | GiveSignup data to target applications available in the Zapier library such as, Donor Perfect, Mailchimp, and thousands of others.  And if you would rather get help on your integration, we have partnered with Sidekick Solutions, a software consulting and integration developer, that has packages available to take the worry out of your integration.

Affiliate Program

The RunSignup | GiveSignup Affiliate program is designed to enrich race directories that help runners find races to participate in.  Affiliates such as, Race Directors HQ,, Evvnt, or maybe just your local running group can access a live feed of local or national races directly from RunSignup or GiveSignup to publish on their own site.  If a participant registers for the event on RunSignup | GiveSignup within 30 days of clicking on the link from the Affiliate’s site, the Affiliate earns 15% of the processing fee.
