Add a Timer to your Race

Modified on 22 May

As a race director, you have the ability to add a Timer to your Race so that they can have access to the data necessary to score and publish results for your Race. This process will only give the listed Timer the information they need, so they will not have full access to your race financial information. 

The process to add a Timer to a Race is found in the Race Wizard at the very bottom of Step One. You can re-enter the Race Wizard by going to Race > Race Wizard from the sidebar of your Race Dashboard. You can also access this mode by clicking your Profile icon in the top right, then clicking My Races, searching for your Race, clicking Actions, then Edit in Wizard Mode.

Search for a Timer

To begin, use the Search for a Timer function to see if the Timer that you are working with already has a RunSignup Timer account set up. Enter in a search term and click the search icon to begin.

If you see your timer in the list that appears below, click the section and they will be selected as your Timer. Once selected, be sure to click Save & Continue before leaving the page.

Invite a Timer

You can also use the green field below to invite a new timer if they do not appear in the results. 

Before inviting a new Timer to RunSignup, please ensure that you have searched for them using their company name, any emails that you have for them, and their name to make sure that they do not have multiple accounts set up for them.

If you are inviting a new timer, be aware that they will need to accept your invitation to become a timer so you may want to let them know to look out for an email from RunSignup regarding their new Timer Account. Once they have set up their Timer Account they will have access. They will not have access to your Race to download participants and upload results until this step has been completed.
