Sunscreen and body marking

They say not to put on your sunscreen before you get your body marked at
IM Wisconsin, presumably because it makes it harder to write on you.
However, the sunscreen I normally use has an *** base and tends to
take marker right off, which I doubt they'd be psyched about. Do I need
to get another kind of sunscreen, or will they have marker-friendly
sunscreen available?

Buck,

Go with what you are used to doing i.e. applying sunscreen..... unless there
is a DQ for doing so.   If body marking was so important to the race, then
let them supply the adhesive numbers, like the ITU races.

Besides, they aren't going to suffer the sunburn that you will.

Harold;

At all the IM's I've done, they have plenty of sunscreen at T1.  Usually
there are several little old ladies wearing***gloves who will
literally slather you with sunscreen if you want.  As I recall, there
were buckets of the stuff for them to work with.
