BIB ASSIGNMENT Athletes will be assigned bib numbers once they have completed the registration process (i.e. when payment has been made and membership documents have been sent or presented along with any other documents required). Bib numbers will be assigned automatically in sequential order, while the bib colour will establish each athlete’s position in the starting grid. The colour will be assigned at the discretion of the event organizer, which will take into account the times given in athletes’ registration forms and their finishing positions in the last two editions of the race. Athletes who leave the “Best Time” section of the registration form empty or incomplete will be assigned a bib for the last group. Bibs from the last group will also be assigned to anyone whose stated time is found to be incorrect. Bibs are strictly personal and must be displayed in their entirety. Athletes must not give them to other people or tamper with them. Anyone who fails to comply with these requirements will be disqualified. Once a bib number has been assigned, it cannot be changed. Registered athletes are responsible for taking possession and the safekeeping of their bibs, which give them the right to use all of the services described in the regulations and in subsequent notifications. In addition to being liable for any damage to themselves and other people or things, anyone who takes part in the race without officially registering and/or with a counterfeit bib may face criminal charges and sporting disciplinary measures from the relevant federation bodies. Any offences of this nature may only be verified by examination of photographic and/or video evidence.
