and race numbers
If you have an allergy you are supposed to put a large black cross on your race number. I have seen various different versions but wondered about the general consensus of the forum.
plague isnt an allergy is it?
dunno ..write it on the back with meds?
I had a large black cross on my race number because I was *shudders*
thats quite funny - veteran =nearly dead (black cross on doors of plague houses)
Never heard of that - I think you are mistaken.
Some races ask you to put any medical details of use on the back of the number though.
ON THE BACK OF MY RACE NUMBER:
IF YOU HAVE ANY ALLERGIES OR MEDICAL CONDITIONS PLEASE MARK A LARGE BLACK CROSS ON THE FRONT OF THE RACE NUMBER
Just because YOU have never heard of it, does not mean I am by default wrong.
sorry I didn't mean to shout.
Oooh I do apologise.
But you could have said that the organisers had stipulated it - would have saved us guessing. Its not been the case for any race I've done in the last five years.
I know a kid who doesnt go anywhere without his special allergy pen - according to his mum he's allergic to just about anything and everything. (but he seems fine to me)
Would you have to declare a seafood allergy on the back - just in case they try to treat you with haddock tablets ? (ha ha haddock/headache)
For some reason Buney and I don't know why, but all the road races seem to say black cross (in the Manchester 10K there were all sorts of different peculiar crosses)
But some of the Tri's ask for a red cross.
Please write all medical details on the back of your race number and put a small indelible Red Cross on the front of your number.
