Secured Gear Check
Runners will be able to store their gear at a gear check drop off area located conveniently near the start line along Huron Road, please refer to the Start/Finish Line Map. Bags will be moved to the finish line area for gear check pick up after the race. Clear bags will be provided at the Expo and on race day. Only these bags will be permitted. Runners are responsible for properly marking their bag by using either the tear-off tag from their bib, or labeling their gear with their name and race number.
The Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon is not responsible for any lost or stolen items. Runners who store their gear will do so at their own risk.
