RE: I'll pass this along from RWOL MRT thread
nationl champ races are about the only time any race official will DQ for no visible race # nowadays.
dont thin ive seen a DQ for non visible bib # at a regional usatf event.
back in the day before chip timed events, visible bib #'s were required when bib #s were helpful for keeping track of race bandits coming thru the finish chute.
I've ran a couple small marathons were race officials went thru the trouble to randomly pick spots on the course, record the bib #'s to prevent this kind of thing. but now in the day of mutiple events-in-one and thousands of runners, weve become too reliant on technology and neglet sound race management practices.
Also any race with $ for Masters or any age group should be using gun time only for prizes. a good RD knows that the runners in contention for prize money know their way around the race circuit enough to get the proper seeding.
just a side note really - its clear any age group prizes
kip'd cant come anywhere close to entry fee and travel cost incurred.
