Freihofer's Run for Women

We have high standards and expectations when it comes to technology, and SportsSignup is helping us raise the bar even more.

SportsSignup, a leading provider of online sports registration management solutions, has added one of the nation’s top women’s middle-distance races to its fast-growing list of clients.

Participants who register online for the 32nd annual Freihofer’s Run for Women and its related events are doing so through software provided by SportsSignup, a Saratoga Springs, N.Y.-based company that has established itself as a national leader in online sports registrations. This year’s Freihofer’s Run for Women takes place Saturday, June 5, beginning at 10 a.m. near the State Museum in Albany, N.Y.

SportsSignup branched out to individual participation sports in November 2009 with the Troy (N.Y.) Turkey Trot, one of the largest and oldest road races in upstate New York with more than 8,000 participants.

Online Registration for the 32nd Freihofer’s Run for Women closes Tuesday, June 1st . To register online, go to http://www.freihofersrun.com. Last chance, in person registration is available up until June 4th. Visit http://www.freihofersrun.com for more details.

The 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) Freihofer’s Run for Women is the centerpiece of a weekend fitness celebration that includes a Community Walk, a Kids’ Run, and a Health and Fitness Expo.

In addition to processing online registrations, SportsSignup is a corporate sponsor of the 32nd Freihofer’s Run for Women.

“We’re proud to be associated with an event of this magnitude and reputation, and honored that its organizers have entrusted us with this responsibility,” said Anthony Bruno, the CEO of SportsSignup. “We have worked hard to build a reputation for reliability and quality of service, and we’re looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with the Freihofer’s Run for Women.”

The Freihofer’s Run for Women attracted a race-record 4,029 women runners to the streets of downtown Albany in 2009, and is on pace to set another record in 2010. The race enables runners and walkers of all abilities to share the stage with some of the world’s top women’s middle-distance runners, who compete for $27,000 in prize money, including a top prize of $10,000.

“We rely on our corporate partners to help us present this great community event, and we appreciate SportsSignup’s support as well as its technical expertise,” said George Regan, Chairman of Event Management for the Adirondack chapter of USA Track and Field and Event Director for the Freihofer’s Run for Women. “Our event has long been known for its cutting-edge use of technology, and we know a high percentage of our participants are Internet-savvy. We have high standards and expectations when it comes to technology, and SportsSignup is helping us raise the bar even more.”
