There will be a very, very limited possibility to pick up starting numbers for the IAAF/AL-Bank World Half Marathon Championships on the race day, Saturday 29 March 2014 in the morning. However, this is the participant's own responsibility, which means that delays caused trafic problems, waiting time or other kind of delays will be the individual runner's responsibility.
