Baggage Check

Gear Check/Baggage Claim is available for participants near the start line. Gear check buses, provided by First Student Charter Bus Rental.

Place all of your items in the clear bag provided at the Expo (extras will be available on-site).  A tear tag is included on your bib and will be used as a means of bag identification.  Attach the tear tag prior to dropping the bag off at the bus.  Buses are arranged in numerical order according to bib numbers.

Allow plenty of time to get to the Start Line in order to check your bag and position yourself in your assigned corral. You can claim your bag after the race just outside the exit to the race recovery area.   Show your bib to the volunteers at your assigned bus to claim your bag.

Queen’s Court

A select group of runners and walkers have been buzzing through the finish line of the Queen Bee Half Marathon since the beginning. We call this royal group our “Queen’s Court,” as they’ve kept their consecutive Half Marathon streak going since 2013!
