Online Registration

Back in the spring, the Upper Peninsula Road Runners Club (UPPRC) took another step forward for the club by offering online registration for membership for the first time in club history.  Paper applications are still accepted, but in today's age of technology, more and more people prefer using the Internet for their transactions.

After many hours of research and testing different options, the club leadership chose RunSignUp to manage the online registrations.   RunSignUp offered the best user interface, simplest management of the signup process and provided great analytics for reporting.

Since offering online registration, we have noticed a spike in registrations, adding several dozen new members in just the last six months.  As the club continues to flourish, it allows us to provide more services to our members.

There will be discussions over the next few months about how we will handle renewals in January, as RunSignUp also offers that feature.
