This section describes the general process for using the API to post race results. There are variations you can make to this process depending on your needs. For example, you may use the API keys for a partner instead of authenticating a user with OAuth. This example assumes that you will download the registration id for each participant and map finishers to their registration id.
Once you have this completed, be sure to check out our API Methods for more advanced features:
RunSignup users can be authenticated by your application or website using OAuth and the RunSignup API. The RunSignup OAuth Integration Guide describes how to do this.
