Bag Check

When you pick up your packet at the Health & Fitness Expo on Friday, Apr. 1 or Saturday, Apr. 2, you will receive a clear plastic Bag Check bag. These Bag Check bags must be used for Sunday bag check, so save them if you plan to use the bag check. No Exceptions!

Get Your Bag Ready:

  • Place your belongings in the clear drawstring Bag Check Bags obtained at packet pick-up.
  • Write your bib number in the provided space on the clear bag with a marker.
  • Tear off the top portion of the bib number (perforated tab with a hole on one end).
  • Loop the drawstrings of the clear bag through the hole in the tab and tie to secure.

Please Be Aware:

  • All checked items must fit in the clear plastic bag and be visible.
  • We cannot accept backpacks and other large items.
  • Your belongings are checked at your own risk.
  • Please do not leave valuables.
  • Unclaimed bags will be returned to the race office and held for 30 days before being donated or discarded.
