Bibswitch.com has been added to the list of MarathonInvestigation.com supporters.
BIBSWITCH is a platform that facilitates bib-transfers between runners and race organizers. A runner that has a bib that they cannot use contacts Bibswitch and Bibswitch contacts the appropriate race director to request approval for the bib sale or transfer.
Once the race director approves a sale or transfer, Bibswitch posts the available bib on the site to help find a match between buyer and seller. Bibswitch does not allow bibs to be sold at a higher price than their original cost.
MISSION STATEMENT: BIBSWITCH is a centralized online platform that facilitates race number transfers between athletes and race directors. Our mission is to help end the existing black market by offering a progressive, win-win solution that improves the race experience for everyone involved. We are committed to bringing positive change to the running community and support the effort of Race Directors to create a better race environment for event participants.
I am very excited that Bibswitch.com is now an official supporter of MarathonInvestigation.com. I also fully support their efforts in coming up with a solution to eliminate black market bib transfers. I recommend runners go through this site instead of posting on other online classified sites (like Marathonguide.com) that enable illegal bib swapping.
