All 5k bags must be checked at the 5k Finish Area. No bags can be checked at the 5k Start.

  • 5k Baggage Check will be located in Nathan Phillips Square. To check your bag, simply look for the section that corresponds to your bib # and line-up there.
  • After you check your bag, you can walk to Queen Street just west of University Ave and take the 5k Shuttle Buses to the start of the race (see shuttle bus section for more information). Shuttle buses will be running from 6:00 a.m. – 7:00 a.m. so make sure to check your bag in early!
  • After you finish the race, your bag will be ready for pick-up at the same location.
