This year the Microsemi Science Fair Fun Run will be utilizing the bib tag system for timing our event.  Participants in the 5K category will have the opportunity to track their start and finish times with a bib tag timing device.  A bib tag is a small lightweight disposable device that is attached to the back of your race number.  Without the bib tag on the back of your race number, you will not receive a time.  NO BIB TAG = NO TIME. Your time will start the moment you cross the mats at the start and then stop the moment you cross the timing mats at the finish line.  Wear your race number visibly on your chest (with the bib tag secure on the back).  Do not bend, fold or remove it.  Use a pin for each corner of the race number, do not pierce the bib tag.  Do not remove the foam spacer, this increases the detection rate of your tag.  These bib tags do not have to be collected after the race, you can keep the race number with the bib tag as a souvenir.
