is there such a thing?
Ran a HM today (matched my PB - pleased considering it was bloody hot) and ruined a new vest with safety pin holes.
My vests are usually thicker than the one I wore today so don't usually notice it as much... but kind of annoyed as it looks atrocious now and cost me the best part of £18.
Not keen on repeating this... and with the amount I race, I'm looking for a new solution.
Has anyone used magnets to attach their number before? If so, where did you get them and how effective were they?
What are you using FFS, nappy pins?
And those pesky organisers have added a good fifteen minutes onto your time too, the incompetent fools.
How could they be so stupid?

If you're referring to results, you'll find that it quite clearly states 1.39.35. What did you achieve yesterday? Sat on here wasting your life away? Good for you
Might investigate that Tri belt... thanks FF.
did it ruin your vest?
It made a few little holes yes. Not pleased but what can you do.
Just glad I didn't have professional training. I could have kidded myself I had the ability to pin the number on properly and then dropped out when I'd wasted everyone's time and money.
Haven't tried magnets but at Silverstone HM I noticed a few people using bag drop stickers instead of their official race numbers (it's not a very useful tip for races without those stickers though, sorry!)
