UPS Bag Check Information

We are pleased to provide runners with a streamlined bag check operation this year, courtesy of UPS.

Bag Check Information
When you pick up your packet at the Health & Fitness Expo on Friday, April 5 or Saturday, April 6, 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 10 Mile Bag Check System:

  • Place your belongings in the clear plastic Bag Check Bag obtained at Packet Pick-up.
  • Remove the UPS tag from the back of your bib number and place it in the space provided on the clear plastic bag.
  • Tear off the Bag Claim Coupon from the top of your bib and insert it so it is visible inside your clear bag.
  • Tie the drawstring together to secure the bag.
  • Take your prepped clear plastic bag to the appropriate UPS truck.
  • After you finish the race, return to the same UPS truck where you left your bag. 

Steps to Use Our 5K Bag Check System:

  • The 5K bag check system will be the same as the 10 mile system, except that bags will be stored at a tent in the 5K Run-Walk staging area as in the past.

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, UPS and other race 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.
