Bib Collection

Bib Collection is where you collect your race bib/number and allocated timing chip. The timing unit is adhered to the back of your race number and must not be tampered with, altered or removed from the race number.

It is very important that you bring your most up-to-date E-Ticket with you to registration. Your E-Ticket provides proof that you are able to collect that particular race number. You may collect other race numbers as long as you are able to show the relevant E-Tickets.

Bib Collection will not be available outside of scheduled times or if a completed electronic (online) Waiver has not been completed by the Participant registered on the race bib.

Please note that if you do not start in the zone selected during the online entry process, there is a high likelihood that your recorded finish time will be incorrect.
