If you’re wearing a timing chip on your shoe, your can put your race number (aka “bib”) anywhere on your body that you like. But if you’re not wearing a chip, the bib goes on the front of your body. This is because the nice people at the finish line need to know who you are when you cross it so they can record your time correctly. Most people pin the bib to their shirt, but you can also pin it to your shorts.
If anyone can tell me where the runners pin their bibs for a nudist race, I’d love to know.
