Fixing numbers to tri suit

Hi All,

I am doing a sprint (pool not open water) at the weekend and will be wearing a tri suit for the first time but not sure what to do about fixing the race numbers to the suit. I dont want to be faffing about in transition trying to fit the numbers to a wet suit using saftey pins and would rather not have to put another top over the tri suit just to have the numbers on....

What do you all normally do?



  • I use a number belt, a bit of elastic that you pin the number to. So when you exit the swim, just clip it on, you can then have your number on the back for the bike and front for the run.

    Tip put the belt on when you pin the number on otherwise when it stretches the number will tear.

    Yeah, elastic number/race belts are the common way of doing this. Usually go for a fiver at most sports shops and online.

    number belt, possibly the cheapest bit of essential tri kit out there.
