Bib Number Requirements

  • All registered participants will receive a bib number that must be worn on race day.
  • Please put any necessary medical and emergency contact information on the back of the bib number with a pen or waterproof marker.
  • Please do not alter the bib in any way.
  • The bib must be visible and worn on the front outside of all clothing during the entire race.
  • All Relay participants must wear a ‘relay’ bib on the back of their shirt as well.
  • Bib numbers are non-transferable and must be worn by the registrant to whom it has been assigned.

Timing Chip on Bibs

  • Do not forget your Bib on race day: without a Bib, you will not receive a time!
  • The bib must be visible and worn on the front outside of all clothing during the entire race.
  • Each Bib is non-transferable and must be worn only by the participant to whom it is assigned.
  • Do not cross the finish line more than once.

Relay Exchange Zone and Finish Line Restrictions

Relay team members must keep the exchange zones on the Bay Race course clear. In other words, team members must remain behind the barricades, until the runner they are meeting arrives for the exchange. Lining up on the race route is prohibited. Failure to comply may result in team disqualification.

Only one team member is allowed to run the Glory Leg crossing the finish line in FirstOntario Centre. A team member from another leg may not cross the finish line. Team members will be able to reunite at FirstOntario Centre.
