In order to use the ChallengeRunner platform to create and manage fitness challenges, you must first create an admin account. Click the New Organization button on the ChallengeRunner home page and then select the type of account you want to create: Community or Commercial. An Enterprise edition is also available for organizations needing additional features and support.
Community accounts are available for anyone who wants to run a free fitness challenge using ChallengeRunner. The Community Edition is ad-supported meaning that participants will see ads when they enter data or view leaderboards on the website or smartphone apps. In addition, the Community Edition does not support automatic data entry via texting, fitness tracker syncing, teams, multiple admins, or page styling. Other than those features it is very similar to the Commercial Edition.
Once you select either to create a Community Edition account or start a Commercial Edition free trial, you will be asked to register your organization. You are required to fill in information about your organization and create an admin account.
