Traverse City West hosted the first ever Homeward Bound 5K on Sunday, May 18th to benefit Pete's Place, a homeless shelter for teens in Northern Michigan.
The event was a great success with over 170 races registering online alone. It was a pleasure working with multiple students to get the online registration page set-up and helping the cause by providing low-cost services.
Here are the results from the Homeward Bound 5K Run/Walk.

As byteEvents enters its fourth year since inception in 2010, we have grown drastically hosting online registration for over 60 Michigan-based events. As we grow, we add more and more feature requests from our users and staff. Here is Part I of this two part update series.
More customizable options
The customer now has control over making registrants viewable to the public. Oftentimes there are events where registration needs to be more private (especially if those under 18 are being registered). We've made this feature editable in the admin tools.
Simply go to... > Event Details > Hide Registrants.
