Race Number Usage

All participants must wear their official race number (bib) on the FRONT of his or her outer layer of clothing. The number must be fully visible at all times (not cut, folded, or obscured) or the runner risks disqualification. The timing chip that records your time is attached to your race number (the foam at the back).

Please fill out the important medical information on the back of your number. It is extremely important to ensure we have accurate medical information about every participant for medical emergencies.  

In any case of exchanging a race number between runners, will lead to disqualification and ban from the race and reporting to the AIMS and IAAF for long-term ban from all the official races around the world.

How can I arrive at the Start?
