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 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 after submitting their Kantipur Marathon application forms. 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 1501 to 2000 and green for women, numbered from 1000 to 1400. 5km Corporate-Media Run bibs are colored black for men, numbered from 201 to 400 and yellow for women, numbered 701 to 900. The Wheelchair Race bibs are colored blue for both men and women, numbered from 01 to 50. The bibs are not to be bent or folded.


Traffic Information


Please note that the route is not closed off for traffic. Although traffic is not heavy during Saturday mornings, the participants are to take care while running on main roads and look out for vehicles.
