About the Event Clips Inventor

I invented the EventClip whilst running through a forest on my birthday Jan 11th 2009 looking down at my running gear, there were holes in my trainers, socks lycra shorts and top, thinking it was about time I treated my self to some new kit - I realised the holes in my top were caused by safety pins from competitions This is when the idea was born.

After years of development, prototypes, testing, more development and being down to my last £400 the design was realised as it is today and launched.

Now the most successful and best selling bib number fastener in the world and Winner of the British Running Awards for Best Accessory for the 3rd year running as voted by the public world wide. 2015, 2016 & 2017
