RunSignUp includes the capability for race directors and timers to assign bib and chip numbers in a multitude of ways.


In the following guides we will cover how to use the many different ways to assign bibs with RunSignUp, and a few different scenarios in which you may want to use one type of assignment over another.


Before we do any bib assignment, you'll want to make sure that any entries that you've taken offline should be imported to RunSignUp by using our import feature. Follow this guide to import your paper registrations: https://runsignup.com/How-To/Paper-Entries.
