NEW Bag Check Information
When you pick up your packet at the Health & Fitness Expo on Friday, April 6 or Saturday, April 7, you will receive a clear plastic Bag Check bag. If you plan to use Bag Check on Race Day, you must use the clear plastic bag, so save it. No Exceptions!

Steps to Use Our Bag Check System:

  • Place your belongings in the clear plastic Bag Check Bag obtained at Packet Pick-up.
  • With a marker, write your bib number in the space provided on the clear plastic bag.
  • Tear off the bag check tab at the top portion of the bib number (perforated tab with a hole on one end).
  • Loop the clear plastic bag's draw string through the bag check tab hole and tie the drawstring together to secure the bag.
  • Take your prepped clear plastic bag to the Bag Check tent corresponding with the first letter of your last name.
  • After you finish the race, return to the same tent where you left your bag. 

Please Be Aware:

  • All checked items must fit in the clear plastic bag and be visible.
  • We cannot accept backpacks or backpack-like items or large items. 
  • Your belongings are checked at your own risk.  Credit Union Cherry Blossom race and its sponsors are not responsible for damaged, lost and/or stolen items.   
  • Please do not leave valuables.
  • Unclaimed bags will be returned to the race office and held for 30 days before being donated or discarded.
