    The BMA has raised the standards of its road race running experience. Therefore the timing technology has been upgraded to a new level.
    The BIBTag is the BMA's new timing system which offers the highest simplicity and efficiency of any automatic timing solution.
    The timing device is now built-in on the back of the BIB. Like the timing chip, runners need to follow exact instructions in order to make sure to have a proper timing:

  • Pick Up your envelope from the BIB-Pick Up stand

  • Do not remove the tag from the BIB.

  • Do not twist, fold or wrinkle your BIB

  • Do not switch your BIB with any other participants

  • Pin the BIB using the four secure pins found in the envelope

  • The BIB should be clearly visible on the front of the chest

  • The BIB should be shown clearly from the Start to the Finish line to make sure you have a proper timing and nice photographs!

  • No BIB-tag = No Time
