  • Where do I leave my stuff while I run the race?

    At the Expo, you will be given a clear Bib Bag. You will be instructed to write your bib number on your bag, and store your stuff in this bag on race morning. UPS will be sponsoring our Bib Bag Drop-Off/Gear Check. UPS trucks will be collecting Bib Bags near the appropriate Start Lines and will be returning Bib Bags at appropriate Finish Lines. (Look out for race morning signage that will direct you to the appropriate UPS truck.) All unclaimed Bib Bags will be returned to The Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon Office after the race. Bib Bags will only be returned to runners who request them, and pay a $15 Shipping Fee.
