Yes! Due to the increasing number of runners that attend each of our races, we are now using race bibs to accurately track and record runners and their place at the finish. Each runner will now be assigned a number at their first race and will keep that number for the remainder of the races in the season’s series. We will use a barcode on the tear off tag; tags will be scanned and the information, already entered into the computer, will be compiled into the results.
For example, if Susie’s first race is the Jingle Bell and is assigned number 216, Susie will be given that same number for the 9 remaining races. Each race, Susie will check in and get a new number 216 bib for that race. At the end of the race, Susie gives the tear off tag to the volunteer at the finish.
Because we are using the tear off tags (not a fully electronic system), it is important that you have your race bib accessible going through the finish chute. You will not have to report back to the registration table after the race (as in past years), but be sure to go by the boathouse for the all-important hot chocolate and other goodies!
