Each event has a different bib range and color of bib.  This is so that we can keep track of where runners are throughout the day and assist with finish order.  Please make sure your bib is on the outer most layer of clothing and on the front of your torso so that the number can be read easily.


IMPORTANT: If you are part of a group or family running together please make sure your bib name and label is correct to the person who is wearing the number.

Wear your bibs your your front and ensure it is clearly visible. See image below for other hints that will help you get an accurate time.
