Made of Tyvek (a durable, plastic-like paper product) or cloth, bib numbers are designed to pin or stick 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 after submitting 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 color coded according to the categories you are running. Half Marathon bibs are red for men, numbered from 101 to 2900 and green for women, numbered from 3000 to 3500. 5km Corporate-Media Run bib are colored black for both men and women, numbered from 4001 to 4600 and the Wheelchair Race bib are colored yellow for both men and women, numbered from 01 to 50.
