FedEx Custom Critical Gear Bag Service

FedEx Custom Critical gives runners the option to check clothing items they may not want to run with. Runners can pick up their free gear bag at the Health and Wellness Expo on Friday at the FedEx Custom Critical booth. Runners will simply drop off their bags at their starting point and pick them up after the race. Gear bags will be labeled with runner’s name and bib number for identification. Items must be picked up day of race by 1:45 p.m. Any unclaimed gear bags will be returned to the marathon office and stored for two weeks. All unclaimed gear bags will be donated to charity two weeks after the marathon.

Drop Off and Pick Up Location

Drop off for marathon, half marathon and leg 1 relay runners will be in the parking lot at the corner of High and Buchtel Streets. Pick up after the race will be at this same location. Relay runners for legs 2, 3, 4, and 5 will be able to drop their gear bags off at their exchange zone. Pick up after the race will be in the parking lot at the corner of High and Buchtel Streets. If you would rather discard your items, donation boxes will be available and all items will be donated to a local charity

Bag Restrictions

No gear bags will be accepted that are not the clear gear bags handed out by FedEx Custom Critical at the Health and Fitness Expo. No other bags may be placed within the FedEx Custom Critical gear bag. We hold the right to have any suspicious bags searched by the proper authorities.
