ASICS Expo Baggage Drop

We encourage all participants to utilise the baggage facility provided at the ASICS Event Expo to drop off any race day bags that you will require post-race in advance. The early drop off means your bag will be ready for you as soon as you've finished your race!

If you chose to drop your bag on race day morning, you will be unable to collect your bag till after 12pm, so be sure to drop your bag in advance Wed-Saturday at the ASICS Event Expo.

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 ASICS Event Expo, Town Hall

2. Place Baggage Sticker (provided in your race bib and replicates the race bib) onto the plastic bag provided at the Baggage Collection marquee outside of the ASICS Event Expo.

3. Insert any post race items you want into the plastic bag (no backpacks will be accepted).

4. Drop at the Baggage Collection marquee situated outside of the ASICS Event Expo. Baggage Drop Off will be open during Expo Trading hours.

Event Day Arrangements

There will be a baggage truck at the event start for the Marathon, Half Marathon (closing 25min before race start time), Bridge Run and Family Fun Run. However, we would encourage participants in these events to make use of the ASICS Event Expo Baggage Drop, if at all possible.

Note: Baggage dropped off on Event Morning will not be available for pick up until 12pm due to road closure requirements on event day.

The rationale and objectives for doing so include;

(a) Reducing the number of baggage trucks on road - we often don't have time to fit the trucks across the Harbour Bridge between events in order to have bags waiting for you at the Royal Botanic Garden.

(b) Improving Security - minimising the number of bags dropped in a short period of time at the start and providing more time for security checking to be completed prior to event day. 

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.
