Please allow 48-72 hours for this code to be emailed to you after you have registered for the Get Back on Track Challenge.
Bring whatever you need to be comfortable on your challenge. If you like to run or walk with a bottle of water, do that. Make sure you have suitable shoes and attire, and if you are choosing to wear your downloadable participant bib, you’ll need to attach it to your top with four safety pins.
You can download your participant bib by clicking on the “Download Your Participant Bib” link on the event website or in your registration confirmation email. Simply download the participant bib file to your computer. You can then print the participant bib from your printer at home or work. To attach it to your shirt you’ll need four safety pins. There are four circles, one in each corner of the bib, showing where to place the safety pins. Wearing a participant bib isn’t compulsory, but it’s good fun!
