Baggage Drop

To minimise the use of the baggage service we encourage all participants to wear old clothes (not garbage bags - which are a trip hazard) and discard them at the start. All discarded clothing will be donated to charity.

  • Baggage Contents

    We would recommend the following;

    • A change of clothes
    • A light weight jacket
    • Any snacks to refuel post-race (no fresh food please)

    Please do not place valuables such as wallets, keys, phones etc. into your bag. Belongings must be collected before 2:30 pm on Sunday race day or they will be treated as lost property. The organisers take no responsibility for the contents of any bag, for theft or loss of property.

  • Expo Baggage Drop Off Procedure
    1. Collect your race bib at the Sydney Running Show. 
    2. Place Baggage Sticker (provided by volunteers at the baggage desk) onto the plastic bag provided at the Baggage Collection marquee. 
    3. Insert any post-race items you want into the plastic bag (we are unable to take any personal bags (handbags, luggage, backpacks etc)  
    4. Drop at the Baggage Collection marquee. Baggage Drop Off hours TBC.
  • Event Day Arrangements
    • There will be a baggage truck at the event start for the Sydney Marathon, Sydney Marathon 21.1KM (closing 25min before race start time), Sydney Marathon 10KM and Sydney Marathon Family Fun Run 3.5KM. However, we would encourage participants in these events to make use of the Sydney Running Show Baggage Drop, if at all possible.

      If you chose to drop your bag on race day morning, you will be unable to collect your bag until after 12pm (Sydney Marathon participants will be the only exception to this rule and will be able to retrieve bags earlier), so be sure to drop your bag in advance Thursday-Saturday at the Sydney Running Show to allow for prompt collection.
