Bag Check

When you pick up your packet at the Health & Fitness Expo on Friday, Mar. 31 or Saturday, Apr. 1, 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!

 

New System for Bag Check:

In order to streamline the Bag Check (think shorter lines), the single large Bag Check tent has been broken into six smaller bag check tents designated by a letter ("A" through "E"). These tents will be located around the perimeter of the Washington Monument on the Constitution Avenue side. You will not be checking your bags based on your bib number. You will be using a "coat check" system in which you will be able to approach any of the six tents (we suggest the one with the shortest line) where your bag will be taken by a bag check volunteer and tagged with a bag check claim check containing your Bag Check tent letter and the number for your bag within that tent. The volunteer will help you apply a wristband at that time with this same information on it. This will assist you in claiming your bag at the same tent after the race. As always, all items must be placed into your clear plastic bag provided at packet pick-up inside the National Building Museum. No gym bags or backpacks will be accepted at Bag Check.

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.
