We have negotiated about the positioning of number bibs with IRF. In the negotiation we reached a solution where the strict rule on positioning is mitigated.
Old rule: "The race number bib – this must be worn on the front & the logos of the race sponsors must be visible."
New rule: "The race number bib – must be visible but it may be positioned elsewhere than front. Logos and race sponsors must be visible"
Hint: By utilizing elastic band as e.g. triathlonist do it is easy to carry number bib always visible despite the need to change clothes. With elastic band you also slip of puncturing your garment you could get from using safety pins.
In the pre race information there is payment details only upto paid by 31.7. and this could lead to the assumption that last registration day is 31.7. but sure you can register until 14 days before the event. Last day of signing up will be 7.8.2015. The payments during the last week are best done via credit card as it is the quickest way to make sure the money is on the way.
Bulletin 4 is now published with information for competitors to help preparations for the race. Information about terrain and nature and some practical matters.
