Volunteer instructions :: Baggage Check
BAGGAGE CHECK – Gibsons
Baggage check is FREE.
Use the numbered bib tearoff included in their kit to identify their bag – staple it around the bag handle or strap. This is done inside Room 209.
If they don’t have their own bag to put their clothes in, they can use one of the plastic bags provided. Limited numbers. Most should have their own bag.
Runners must take their bag directly to the gear check van waiting outside. Inside the van (it’s a 1-ton cube truck from Prime Rentals) the bags should be placed in groups or rows according to bib number, so they can be easily found later.
Gear Check Captain will drive the truck to the finish line after the race has started. See finish line map for proposed location of truck.
BAGGAGE CLAIM — Mission Point Park (Davis Bay)
This year the bags will be handed out directly from the cube truck – no need to unload the bags first.
Attach the GEAR PICKUP sign to the truck where it can be seen from the finish line.
When the truck arrives, spend some time making sure the bags are organized according to bib number and be ready for the runners to arrive starting at 10:25am. Never leave bags unattended. 2 people can work at the opening, calling out bib numbers to 2 bag retrievers, who hand them to the callers to give to the runners.
DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY BAGS UNLESS THEY SHOW YOU THE MATCHING BIB.
