  1. Your bib number must be worn on your front torso – not on your back or leg.
  2. Your bib number must not be covered. It must be visible on the outermost layer of clothing. DO NOT wear a shirt or jacket over your number.
    Covering your bib can interfere with the operation of the timing chip
  3. Your bib number must always be visible so that you can be identified as a Baystate participant by support staff, volunteers, medical and safety personnel.
  4. Pin your bib number in all four corners.
