Bag Check

We’ll be glad to take your bag!  We’ll even give you the bag.

Baggage Check will be located near Packet Pickup on Somerville Drive, before you get to Redland Road, the morning of the race. This is just beyond the Metro parking lot. We will need to see your bib number for you to use this service. Bags must be dropped off by 6:35 am and will be waiting for you at the finish line.  Once your bag is checked, you will not be able to retrieve it until after you complete the race.  Backpacks or bags weighing over 5lbs, as well as bags containing liquids, will not be accepted. No bikes, strollers, infant car seats will be accepted at bag check. You must have your race bib to retrieve your bag at the finish area, so be sure to keep it with you.  

For security & liability reasons, please do not check the following items: 

  • liquids 
  • electronics, including phones  
  • large bags or bags weighing more than 5 pounds 
  • valuables 
  • breakables 
  • anything you need during the race (shoes, race bib, etc.) 

Race officials and/or law enforcement may refuse or destroy any bag or contents deemed suspicious.  We encourage you to make plans in advance to meet friends and family at a specific time and place, so you won’t need your phone.
