Putting on your Race Bib correctly is an essential step to having a great race. It’s important that race officials see your race bib so they know that you’re an official participant. If you don’t have your bib securely fastened on the right way, it could get annoying and uncomfortable during the race. You also want to make sure that the professional photographers on the course can clearly see your bib because they use your race number to match you and your race photos.

Follow these simple steps to make sure you put your Race Bib on properly.
