Broad Street Run - gear check (Read 85 times)


just a simple cat

    Gear check procedure for 2013 - arrive early to avoid delays!

    You are strongly encouraged to bring as little as possible with you to the start of the race. No backpacks are permitted in the start area. All items brought into the start area are subject to search and/or confiscation.

    Clear plastic bags must be used for gear check in 2013. Items not in clear bags will not be accepted on the gear buses. All participants will be given a clear bag at t-shirt pick up at the expo. You cannot place your backpacks in the clear bags - all items must be visible. Those who had their race packet mailed can pick up a bag at the gear check buses or you may bring your own clear drawstring

      I think clear bags might be the new normal.  A few days before Boston, I ran a 5K where we were allowed to just drop our bags on a tarp.  A few days later, we had formal bag check with clear bags.

       

      The other non-terrorism related reminder the race officials sent out was not to run under someone else's bib.  In case of an emergency, EMTs will think you're someone else.

        Although clear bags make sense, how does such a measure help prevent something like the Boston incident? Seems like a low hanging fruit action.

          Maybe the market for these will take off now. Only $8.99!
