Where should runners bib be placed?
Position the bib and pin the one top corner. The best position is across your abdomen, not your chest. And you don’t want it place it too low because it will move a lot if it’s too close to your legs. Once you have it in the spot where you’d like it, make sure that it’s straight across.
Do running bibs go on front or back?

They are intended for swimming, biking, and running in, but typically have a much thinner pad that your average cycling shorts. I wouldn’t want to bike or run in jammers, but it can be done.
