Custom Race Bibs
Bib numbers are a timer’s and race director’s most important tool. Each individual runner is assigned a bib number when they register for a race or pick up their event packet. This number is printed on a flexible yet durable paper specifically designed to hold up against any elements participants may endure during their races such as rain, mud, or wind. Once pinned onto a shirt these numbers go wherever their runners do. The benefit? When every runner has his or her own identifying number keeping track of racers is much simpler.
In addition to basic participant tracking, the running number can serve several other purposes. Synchronizing a timing chip system with your event’s number sequence runners will aid in eliminating reporting errors in finishing times. Photo tagging technology can allow for automatic photo sharing on social media. Running numbers can also be placed online so a participant’s friends and family can track their race progress—step by step and mile by mile—via a computer or mobile device.
