Bag Check and Security

Please consider not bringing a bag to the race. If you check a bag, it must be the clear plastic bag you receive at the Pre-Party, with the baggage tag from your bib affixed to it. No other bag will be accepted at bag check. All bags are subject to inspection. 

If you are checking a bag, plan to arrive at the start by 5:00 a.m. for Wave 1 and Wave 2. Bag check will close at 6:10 a.m. for Wave 1 and 7:00 a.m. for Wave 2.

Bag check will be located at Eastern Parkway at Bedford Avenue for Wave 1 and Grand Army Plaza at Eastern Parkway for Wave 2. 

Check your bag by handing it to an NYRR staff member at your bib-range zone. Your bag will be transported to the finish. All bags are subject to search. Any bag left unattended will be confiscated by NYPD and could cause an interruption to the day’s events. No hydration packs, backpacks, props, costumes, or selfie sticks are allowed in the corrals or on the course. 

Please be advised that if you check your bag after the bag check has closed for your wave, you will likely have to wait at the MCU Park parking lot after the race to claim it. We cannot guarantee when bags that are checked late will arrive at the MCU Park parking lot.
