A solution to the bag check debacle!

Hello JackRabbit Marathon Training Participants,

 

As most of you may already be aware, the New York Road Runners has eliminated the Bag Check/Transport for this years New York City Marathon.  This has created a serious void for many folks running the NYC Marathon. To help everyone in the local running community JackRabbit is turning our Upper West Side Community Space into Bag Check Central.  We hope to be able to accommodate 1,000+ runners.  We of course want to make sure that you, our NYC Marathon Training Program participants, are taken care of before we open this up to the public.

 

Read through the brief description below, and IF you decide that you want to utilize our marathon Bag Check option, open the (GREEN) link below and complete the form by the end of day on Friday, September 14th for a guaranteed spot. If you cannot access the form because registration has closed before the 14th, please email me and I can help you out.

 

JackRabbit NYC Marathon Bag Check Details:

  • You can drop your stuff off at the Upper West Side store:
    • Thursday, November 1st, 11am to 9pm
    • Friday, November 2nd,  11am to 8pm
    • Saturday, November 3rd,  10am to 8pm
  • Everything you check must be put into ONE JackRabbit string bag.
  • Limit one per person
  • You can drop off for someone else, but you cannot pick up for someone else.
  • Once you drop off your bag, you will not have access to it until Sunday.
  • You must have some kind of ID to pick up.  Valid forms of ID are:
    • The wristband we’ll give you when you drop off your stuff.
    • A government or university issued photo ID that actually looks like you.  You can leave it in your bag when you drop off, so we can check it when you pick up.
    • Your cell phone — we can call you on the number that you’ll give us when you make your reservation.
  • We are not responsible for lost, stolen, damaged or otherwise missing goods.

While training for a marathon, it’s important to keep motivated. Here’s A little run-spiration: Erica, shown in the video, believes it’s very important to advocate the for those who can’t speak up for themselves. By running for YAI, you’re raising awareness for an agency that’s doing just that… and helping people like Erica find their own voice.
