RunSignup has been around for over a dozen years helping endurance events. We more recently developed TicketSignup (built on the same core platform) to help an expanded set of customers, and in particular farms who put on events.
While we are still working on learning all of the needs of different farm events like corn mazes, pumpkin patches, haunts, sunflower days, holiday light shows, etc., we are drawing on the knowledge and experience we gained from our existing farm customers who have been holding endurance events for years.
For example, this year over 200,000 people will signup on our platform for a 5K on a farm. We have learned about the needs to enable your customers to self-serve to change tickets, how to make sure the check-in process is fast and easy, how to make sure you get your money fast and it is easy to account for, how to make sales tax effortless, how to give you a free website with only your branding, and how to make sure you got free promotion tools like free email and Referral Rewards to help you build and grow your business.
Here are some examples:
Gourdy’s Pumpkin Run
Gourdy’s hosts about a dozen in person Pumpkin Runs with a number of partner farms they work with. Each typically has several thousand participants.
Cherry Lake Farm
Cherry Lake Farm puts on a 5K and 10K in the fall at their 1,100 acre farm in Groveland, Florida.
Weir River Farm Trail Run
Weir River Farm in Hingham, MA has a trail run in mid October each year.
Kansas Maze Sunflower 5K and Sunflower Maze
As we look to help more and farms with technology and payments for their events, we are building on a strong foundation of software and customer understanding.
