Modified on 23 January

This help page focuses on creating a specific type of Registration Question.

You can learn more details about How to Add Registration Questions here:

For a quick guide to the question creation section, go to your Race Dashboard,

then open up Race > Registration > Questions > Add Question.


By selecting “Essay”, registrants will be given a blank text box in which they can enter in a long text response.  This is useful for when none of the question types pertains to your custom question.

This is best for very long responses.  For shorter responses, you should consider using Free Form questions.
