In 2009, UltraSignup was founded on a simple, yet uncharted, idea: to seamlessly bring together event registration and live results onto one platform for participants to easily access, enjoy, and be inspired by.

This idea has created a massive database of results, while also setting the foundation for how athletes and race directors analyze the competition in real time. UltraSignup has catapulted into the fastest growing full-service race management company in North America, providing all the essential components for premiere trail races. UltraSignup’s unique layout makes race registration easy, and UltraSignup’s integrated timing software allows participants to receive real time race results once they’ve crossed the finish line.

UltraSignup has bridged the rigor of event organizing with the innovative software to create the ultimate race-management experience. We believe that integrated and high quality technology will lead to a more efficient race management experience, which allows the event directors to focus on what matters: the runners! Thank you for being a part of our journey as we propel trail running and endurance adventure into the future.

Race Registration

Our registration system is as unique as it is accessible and easy. After the first time an Athlete uses our system, their payment method is remembered and can be recalled quickly when registering for future events. Thanks to this payment system, participants never again need their wallets to continue their adventures.

Race Results

UltraSignup integrates our events’ entrants lists and archives thousands of trail running events into our results database. This means you can use our search page to see anyone’s past performances on trail. Every runner also has access to an individual results profile, showing every result in our database that has their name attached. However, as a tech company we respect and value the desire for privacy in the digital age, so we also offer personalized settings for users to have aliases and/or hidden results and calendars.

Free Race Timing

Our free integrated timing software makes timing your race a breeze. Your entrants list and bib numbers are automatically transferred over, and changes can be made directly in the app. No internet connection is required during the event, so a remote mountain race is no problem. Once results are published and confirmed, you can quickly notify your participants via email, and their times are automatically added to their individual result pages.

Our directors say...

Thank you Ultra Signup! I am not computer savvy but it has been easy setting up my race on your site. On the few occasion I've gotten stuck I call and every time I get to talk to a friendly person. Even when I called one time in the middle of the night, I expected to leave a voice mail but a person answered and walked me through what I needed done. The site makes it easy to keep race information organized. Uploading results is no problem. There is plenty of room on the race page to add all race information. Lot's of great features, thank you...You do a fantastic job!
Michele Hartwig, Midwest States 100
From the very beginning Mark has been so helpful answering questions about the website and the awesome timing system they have. Ultra Signup is by far above and beyond other registration websites I have used. The "extras" this site provides to race directors of smaller races who can't afford chip timing are so helpful and save so much time and money! Thanks for all you do!
Kim Owens, Yankee Springs Winter Challenge
Since 2008 the HURT 100 has utilized Mark's services at Ultrasignup and we are incredibly happy that his services are available to us. As a small event we don't have the panache of other events, however Mark treats us as if we are his MOST IMPORTANT EVENT. This, despite the fact that we have a very difficult lottery system in place that he easily and seamlessly navigates year on year to make it perfect. The amount of work he puts into this event and our HURT Trail Series is beyond reproach. I hesitate to say that If you are an RD you need Mark's services, simply because I selfishly want him to keep concentrating on our small event. Mark you ROCK! Aloha, HURT 100
Jeff Huff, HURT 100
I don't know how to thank you enough for all your support for the last many years. If every business in the US was run as well as yours and every entrepreneur was the consummate professional that you are, we would be an extremely happy well run country. Could you go ahead and run for president? I want to sing your praises in a very public way. Is there a forum that I could use for that? So many times I've been such an idiot and you've picked up the phone every time and talked me through a panicked situation. Early Sunday morning, three day weekend, every time you were patient and kind with me. You are the best and I would love it if everyone could know how I feel about Ultrasignup! Thanks again Mark and someday I hope I can repay you for all the help. Sincerely, warmly, and in Gratitude Anna Bates - PCT B2B
Anna Bates, Strawberry Fields Forever
