BIB Numbers

Bib numbers are a tool for race directors to distinguish thousands of runners apart and to simplify the seemingly impossible task of getting a time for each and every one of these runners. Made of Tyvek (a durable, plastic-like paper product) or cloth, bib numbers are designed to pin onto a t-shirt or racing vest and withstand sweat, rain and tears while moving with the competitor’s’ body.

The participants will receive their bib numbers at the day of Kantipur Marathon. All runners will receive two bib numbers and both must be worn during the race. One bib must be attached to the front of the body and another one is for the back. The bib numbers are colour coded according to the categories you are running. Half Marathon bibs are red for men, numbered from 1501 to 2500 and green for women, numbered from 3001 to 3400. 5km Corporate  Run bib are colored black for men, numbered from 201 to 800 and yellow for women, numbered from 801 to 1200 and the Wheelchair Race bib are colored blue for both men and women, numbered from 01 to 50. The bibs are not to be bent or folded.
