Bib Information

The BTN Big10k and 5k is an officially timed event using an industry leading disposable chip timing system. The timing system provides each participant with an accurate time from the start to the finish line as well as on course splits. Because of this, individual timing tags are affixed to the back of each bib number. Leave the tags on the back of the bib number and wear the bib number on your front torso, so that it is clearly visible on the outside of your clothing.
Please ensure the following are in order to receive an accurate time and to access your start corral:

-Race bib is clearly visible on the front of the torso
-Race bib is unaltered and unmodified (do not fold or wrinkle)
-Race bib is pinned in all four corners
-Race bib is not covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)
