Gear Check

Gear check will be located near the starting line for any gear you want to leave. Your gear will be secured in a plastic sack and your bib number will need to be written on the sack with the marker provided at the tent. The volunteers in the gear check tent will help you secure items and stay with items during the race.

Any bags left unattended in the festival area will be subject to search.  If you discard an item on the course, it will most likely not be returned. Any unclaimed items left after the end of the race will be donated to charity.
