You must remove the d-tag from your number and attach it to your shoe prior to the race. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT THE D-TAG IS ATTACHED CORRECTLY. The d-tag is disposable; it will not be collected after the race. All participants in this race must wear the d-tag in order to have their times recorded.
