All participants must pick up their race kit during race kit pick up hours. There will be no race kits available at the start line.

Bag check will be in a large tent in Celebration Square. Tear off your baggage tag from the bottom of your bib and attach it to your bag. Your bag will be held securely until your return. You’ll be asked to show your bib to collect your items. We ask that you be mindful of the items you are checking; no valuables and keep size to a minimum.

Marathon bag check will be in the same location but loaded on to a truck (look for the signs). Items will be brought to the marathon finish.

There is no charge for bag check.
