Race Numbers

I know that it is very tempting, but giving your race number to someone else is NOT a good idea. Firstly, if there's a medical issue then the wrong people will be contacted and secondly, the person you give it to will be timed as you and you might find that you have won an embarrassing trophy, with the real winner justifiably peeved! Final reason is that lots of race organisers these days will ban you from entering future races if you have swapped numbers. If you find that you cannot do the race, of course it's a shame to waste an entry, but please do it through the race organisers.
