BIB NUMBER Bib numbers are given on the basis of running times declared by each participant at the time of registration. Since your bib number also displays your personal data, it must only be worn by you. Absolutely no swapping is allowed. Check for mistakes and report them immediately to staff in charge. The timing chip is disposable and embedded in the back of race bib. Use four safety pins at the holes at the bib’s corners. Do not fold your bib. Bib numbers must be affixed PROPERLY on the front of your race t-shirt and made visible.

Use the lorry with the corresponding number. You must collect your backpack from the same lorry at the Marathon finish area (Via dei Fori Imperiali).
