Unless of course you are a laydeee

ahh, no, classic newbie mistake. what you think is a vest is, in fact, actually shorts. They have added ventilation so that you don't over heat in the nether regions.

Your arms go through the two holes to either side

It depends - is it a front-name club or a back-name club? Getting it wrong could result in disqualification. From everything.

I suggest you stop halfway and switch your shirt round (not forgetting to change your running number to the 'new' front). this way you can sure of being right at least half the time!

Hang on... I see the problem now. You've got it inside-out.

To be honest, I've always found that it depends on which side you put your ipod - a must in any race.  If you carry your ipod in one of those arm thingies on the left side, then your ipod wires are going to swing to the left, so you need to have your vest on with your club name etc on the back.

If you do the opposite and have your ipod thingie on the right, then you will be disqualified unless you wear your vest inside out and back to front. 

If, however, you wear yours in a bumbag / pocket towards the front, then you won't even be allowed out of the car park unless you have matching vest, shorts, socks and shoes (all brand new) and your vest MUST be worn with the large hole at the top and the small hole at the bottom.
