Tips on Wearing Your Bib Number:

For best results, wear your bib number centered on the front of your shirt. Bib numbers are used as identification in photos and in cases of emergency, so  please:

Fasten your bib at all four corners so that it is clearly visible on the front of the torso.
Use a ballpoint pen and complete the medical emergency form on the back.
Your bib and timing chip are integrated together, so please:

Do not cover your bib with jackets, shirts, fuel belts or water bottles.
Do not fold or remove the timing chip on the back of your bib.
