Race bibs might be simple, but that doesn't mean they have to be boring
People have been running races since before the days of ancient Greece, and it's always been a challenge to keep track of time. After all, every runner wants to know how fast they were, even if there's no prize for coming in first. When there's only a dozen runners, that's not a big deal. In marathons with thousands of competitors, though, it takes organization and commitment to keep track of who ran the race in what amount of time.
That's one reason race bibs have been a staple of events big and small for decades now. They clearly label runners, allowing officials to keep track of departures and arrivals, and they're lightweight enough that the runners will barely notice them after a while.
These simple pieces of Tyvek can do more than just keep track of who ran the race in what time, though. They can also act as great souvenirs to give runners something to remember the race by.
Custom Race Bibs: Make Your Event Stand Out
Race bibs might be simple, but that doesn't mean they have to be boring. You have a swatch of Tyvek that will cover part of a runner's chest, so why not make the most of it? Everything from a unique font and color scheme, to loudly proclaiming the event in question, can turn the bib from a simple piece of waterproof fabric into a unique keepsake. There's rarely a prize for running a race, aside from the bragging rights that you did it. So why not give your runners something small they can take home as a souvenir?
