Pre-Race Procedures

Race Bib Number & Number Tattoos
• In your race kits you will have a swim cap, bib number, and bike # sticker.

• Affix your Bib number to a bib strap belt (fabric elastic or proper triathlon belt).  Do not wear your Bib in the swim under your wet suit, it will probably tear apart when you take it off.  Your Bib must be visible on the run course.  Write any critical medical information on the back of your bib.

• Remember to wear your ankle timing chip.

• Your bib number is your passport to retrieve you bicycle after the race.

•  One timing chip must be transferred between team members in the transition zone between each leg.  Runner to wear bib number.
