How do I wear My Bib?
The race will be timed using the ChronoTrack B-tag which is affixed to your bib. Please wear your bib facing FRONT so it is visible to the timer when you cross the start and finish lines in order to be timed. Do not bend or fold your bib or your risk breaking the chip and not getting a time.

You will be timed in the event for which you registered. Please see event staff or email info@troyturkeytrot.com if there are issues with the event you are registered for.

Can someone pick up my packet for me - or can I pick one up for someone else?
