Evolo Condos in Montreal
It seems to be a problem that people with marathon tickets sometimes back out and want to sell them to other people. I don’t really grasp why this is an issue.

The issue is that the bib is registered to someone else. If something happens to that runner (lets say, a heart attack) the organizers will not have the correct runner’s information to pass on to emergency responders, not the contact info of their family.
The ideal way for a race to deal with this is to have an official bib transfer program. This would allow a runner who is buying a bib from someone else to properly register their information. Here’s an example of a race that does this: http://www.broadstreetrun.com/Transfers.cfm
I would also add that as a runner I prefer other runners to be registered in the proper age group and gender category. I am not fast but I do care about my placement, and I want to be able to compare myself of women in my age group, not to 25 year old males using other people’s bibs.
Thanks, Daisy. That makes the situation much clearer.
