Expect to get a temporary tattoo if you'll be part of the Quantico Triathalon portion of the Marine Corps Marathon Event Series later this month.
It's also going from manually recorded time to the use of electronic chips as swimmers jump into the pool. The tattoos with athletes' numbers will be on their each upper arm and calf for visibility. This will be a test for other events and organizers hope it makes races more accurate and event registration lines shorter.
