When you pick up your packet at the Health & Fitness Expo on Friday, Apr. 4 or Saturday, Apr. 5, 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!
Bag Check Opens at 6:05 A.M.
There will be a large white tent for checking your belongings on the Washington Monument Grounds for the 10-Mile and on Independence Ave. in the vicinity of the Sylvan Theater for the 5K. Runners MUST place their belongings in the clear drawstring Bag Check Bags obtained at packet pick-up. These bags will have a place to write your bib number with a marker directly on the bag itself. In addition, there will be a tear off portion on the top of your bib number to affix to your bag in a visible location for additional identification purposes.
Ten Mile Runners: You must check your bag at the tent no later than 7:05 A.M. and all bags must be retrieved by 11:00 A.M.
5K Runners/Walkers: You must check your bag at the tent no later than 8:35 A.M. (5 minutes before the start of the 5K).
Please note that we cannot accept backpacks and other large items. All checked items must fit in the clear plastic bag. 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.
