“Disclaimer: I received a set of BibBoards to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!”
We have all struggled with using the standard safety pins to stick our bib on our race shirt. We have all been poked, stabbed and probably frustrated with those sharp little devil pins. I tried the bib magnets a few months ago and found that they were so strong, that when I sat down the top ones would connect with the bottom ones and my shirt would be a crumbled mess in front of me. This month, I was given the opportunity to try BibBoards and I think we have a winner!
I received this adorable set with the motto: Will Run for Wine
BibBoards are not pins or magnets, rather they are snap-ons that don’t put holes in your shirt, are easy to use, functional and reusable! I was pleasantly surprised that the entire process consisted of pushing the front and back of the snap-on together. No more tearing of my bib, no more putting several holes in my shirts and no more stomach or finger pokes! They are weatherproof, won’t fall off and are easy to store because they are so small. I used mine for a 10k trail run and when I got in my car, I threw them into my extra cupholder. They will remain there until my race next weekend, where they will be convenient for me to grab and go!
There are quite a few different and fun designs for BibBoards. They range from smiley faces, distances like 13.1 or 26.2 and even phrases such as “Keep Calm and Run On” or “Run Your Own Race”. They add a little flair to your running outfit and makes it more personal and meaningful for you. But, another one of their great, unique features is that they are customizable! You can design your own set (if you’re creative like that) and order them for your event, running group or team. This also adds a bit of a marketing advantage as they are a great idea for sponsors.
I have been changed forever and have joined the #NoPinRev. I will not go back to using safety pins and cursing those little metal stabbers at 6am as I am sitting in my car trying to get it just right. Instead, I will simply snap on my bib and go! For a limited time, you can also get your set of BibBoards at a 20% discount using the code BibChat. So, if you don’t believe me, try them for yourself!
