Where do I wear my bib number?   You must wear your bib number on your front torso and it must visible when you cross the finish line.

Do NOT wear the bib on your back, ever.

You must not bend or fold your bib as it contains the race timing device that will record your finish.

No bib number, no finish time.
May I give my bid number to someone else?   That is not allowed. If you do you cause the scoring to be inaccurate for age and gender category of the person to whom the bib was issued.

Your thoughtless act can possibly deprive others in the age and gender category to be denied awards they may have qualified for.

This also causes insurance and emergency medical implications for the event.
May I run or walk without registering? Absolutely not. A few thousand have registered and paid toward our cause. When you run or walk any race without registering you are thumbing your nose to those who have paid.
