Late Entry

Athletes marked with Late entry will be assigned the first available bib numbers in their class.

License

Marking an athlete with License means they have paid a participation fee. This will be visible in some reports.

Unused Bibs

The number of unused bibs specified in the class list in the Setup tab affects how bib numbers are assigned. Before bibs are assigned to athletes in a class, the corresponding number of unused bibs for that class will be skipped.

For example, if a class has 5 unused bibs, the first athlete will be assigned bib number 6. The first 5 bibs will be reserved for athletes potentially being registered later.
