(2015 example) and your bib number.
To time the race, we use bib numbers and tear-off tags (the old-fashioned method), so please wear your bib number visibly on the front of your shirt and donít remove the name tag at the bottom. We collect the name tags after the race to determine to order of finish
We also may deploy our new Bolt electronic timing system. If so, you'll find a timing tag in a waterproof plastic enveloped stapled to the back of your bib number. Please make sure that envelope stays intact throughout the race, and please remove the envelope and deposit into the collection box after the race.

As always, I shall bring copies of my book "The Man Who Stole The Sun" about three Arlington runners planning to run Marine Corps Marathon the next day, and the obstacles they must overcome. It's a story of love, betrayal, courage, and triumph, and along the way, you meet a cast of interesting characters who act upon very different motives. You also learn some quantum mechanics, theoretical astrophysics, and proofs of Stephen Hawking's work, all tied up into 120 pages.
It's $10.00, autographed by the author, or we can mail a copy anywhere for $14.00.
