Bib & Chip Timing

Your bib must be display on the front of you. 
Your timing chip will be on your bib. 
Do not switch or change bibs with any other runners. This will affect the results! 
Do not remove your timing chip or bend it. 
Do not fold your bib. 
Do not cover you your bib with clothing during the race. 
We recommend putting your bib on your pants or shorts if you plan on shedding clothes during the race

VERY IMPORTANT! Please make sure you are wearing the bib that is registered to you. Wearing someone else bib creates major issues to the event and possibly the person wearing it. If race organizers become aware that a runner has participated in one of our events with a bib that is not registered to that runner, both the runner AND the person whom the bib is registered will be prohibited from participating in subsequent Focus Multisports events for a minimum of two years.
Our past races have been marred by numerous participants running under the guise of someone else’s race number. While this may seem harmless to the parties perpetrating the unauthorized bib transfer, it does convey serious consequences to the organizers and participant field alike.
From race results to finishers’ awards being impacted as well as medical staff being able to correctly identify participants in need of treatment, it is imperative that the registration data associated with your race number does in fact belong to you, the participant.
