It is essential that each team member wears their race number throughout the event. Your race number should be worn on the front of your top, using a safety pin to secure it in each corner. If you don’t have any safety pins, come and see us at the registration desk on race morning and we’ll fix you up. However, we do understand that some of you in costume may want to change the position of your race number to suit. Have at it – so long as it is clearly visible, we’re all good.
Pimp Your Bib
When you register, you can choose to have a nickname or other message on your race number, instead of your first name. Just look for the “nickname” question when entering. There is limited space on the bib and we want your nickname to be big and easy to read, so this field is limited to a maximum of 20 characters. Some participants prefer to keep things on the down-low. If you’d rather that your name was not printed on your race number just leave that field empty on the team list. Your team name will be printed on the bib too.
Due to the lead time required to print and prepare the race numbers, if you enter in the final week prior to the event it is unlikely you will have a name or nickname printed on your race number. Feel free to get the sharpie out and get busy with your best artwork.
It’s also important to remember that if your entry was transferred from another person, it’s possible that the race number was printed with their name on it. In these cases, you can either go with the flow, or put some tape over the name to cover it up. Either way, the race results will correctly show your name, even if your bib does not.
