Start Line Information

Finish Area Gear Check:

THERE ARE NO GEAR CHECK SERVICES OFFERED AT THE START LINE.  Gear check services are provided in the FINISH AREA ONLY.  Any items taken on busses, shuttles, or to the start area will NOT be returned to you.  All items discarded at the start line or in the first 2 miles of the course will be donated to local charities.

If there are personal items or clothing that you want at the finish line after the race, you can use our Finish Area Gear Check service that is open to receive bags beginning on Saturday Dec. 2.
