    1. Treat all participants, marshals, volunteers and spectators with respect and courtesy.
    2. Bib must be worn by each participant during the entire race. The BIB includes in its back the Timing Chip Tag, so it must be worn during the whole race in order to record the timing and be eligible for Winner Trophy.
    3. Participants must wear their BIB facing forward during the race.
    4. The correct BIB must be worn by the participant in all races in order to ensure proper time recording. Please ensure not to damage or bend the bib because it includes in its back the Timing Chip Tag. If the Timing Chip Tag is broken, then it will not record your time.
