Update: Got back from work and I have to say the Bib Fix Give Away is now Closed ! Thank you for the overwhelming response… I will be sending it to you guys by post tomorrow. Sorry It is only to 5 person. Do wait for the more Isaac’s Give Away.
This was my 2015 Tokyo Marathon bib, and in that bib it states Gate 4 on the upper left, that means I am in the holding pen for the 4hour category, and now if you ask me why are you looking at my bib, you would notice the pins in the middle of the picture right? That is a standard that comes with all race bibs, Well this post is dedicated to divorcing those little pins
Last year I did about 12 races and most definitely all races comes with a identification tag (Race Bib) that is given to you to identify the racer, and you wonder what is the most annoying thing that could result from just seems to be a harmful piece of paper? what could go wrong? Just a paper right ? I can name you plenty
- Torn race singlet
- Mis-aligned Race Bib
- Pinning your own self (ok I admit It happend to me)
- Torn race bib
Putting on your race bib correctly is an essential step to having a great race. It’s important that race officials see your race bib so they know that you’re an official participant. If you don’t have your bib securely fastened on the right way, it could get annoying and uncomfortable during the race. You also want to make sure that the professional photographers on the course can clearly see your bib because they use your race number to match you and your race
How hard could it be right? well it’s not a matter of how hard, I always try to find the most convenient way to put it on, the fast way I found pinning my bibs has always been with two pins, Just pinning it on the top part which resulting in the bib flapping upwards. I do find it annoying but recently I have tried a couple of brands
Tackonz and Bibbits
If you notice all my bib pins are red cause that’s yours truly lucky color, if you notice one of the bib bits is missing cause that what it is, ran my Berlin Marathon with only 3, bummer.
Then came a saviour which I have tried and tested, it is BIB FIX which I used for my most recent races (yes it is red again)
If you notice that at first I thought this was similar to Tackonz and I hated Tackonz cause it was the hardest to put on and I keep fumbling while putting it on, worst is after running with Tackonz my bib is totally crushed and some Tackonz have popped out of place.
If you are wondering BibFix is from Spain and it is also made in Spain, It is pretty much easy to put on even easier than Tackonz I assure you but my BibBits which is the magnet was the easiest to put on but falls of even easier (there goes my TEN EUROS)
Putting is on is simple I assure you and I have found the easier way to do it also
- Firstly take all the Bib Fix out
- Align your Bib and Tshrt to the part where you like it (usually I will align in to the region of my tummy)
- Place the Bib Fix then place the white part of Bib Fix and press firmly till you hear a click
- Done, Now go RACE !
Bibfix is a reusable and affordable
So the benefits are as follow
- Designed specifically for athletes participating in an array of sporting events
- Causes no damage to clothing
- Is lightweight
- Presents a low profile
- Is comfortable to wear
- Will not cause skin irritation or allergies
Do visit BibFixSGMY for all the colors available or if you are interested in purchasing, do contact the person handling the BIB FIX account, from their comment and service response, they seem pretty fast and item ordered will be delivered promptly, they can even make arrangement to send it out to other countries but please do check with the people of BibFix,

It is only for the best that the organisers and event sponsor VGO Corporation Ltd made the decision after considering the health safety and well-being of the 2,500 participants who had registered for the 10km run
My best timing for Kent Ridge hills 10k Nus run was 53mins time and time again, I have never gotten below sub 50 for my 10k, be warned that I am still injured and If you have been following my twitter or Instagram you would have known that alraedy, It’s been a crazy long 9 months and its been hard on me to just stop running and doing my sports. Keeping myself motivated by reading Tumblr quotes and eating chips (just kidding)
So this time round, World of Sports have invited eight lucky bloggers to pit out their running skills against each other for the Mizuno Run, and I was lucky enough to be invited for this run as well.
I do not know the rest of the bloggers personally but have seen their famous names around on the blogsphere, I wonder if they know me ? Seen some of the girls profile, all I have to say is Good Figure and Awesome personality, I wonder if I will be famous if I don a Bikini for that profile pic? All I could give them was a miserable black and white pic of myself, so check out the rest
Anyway Did I mention that One lucky winner with all 8 correct guess will walkaway with a pair of Prima Cantabile from Mizuno.
