From The New York Times: "After criticism from marathoners, New York Road Runners reversed itself and said it would allow runners to check a bag at the starting line of the New York City Marathon on Nov. 4."

Because who DOESN'T want a fresh pair of socks or some comfy clothes after running 26.2 miles through New York City with 45,000+ friends?!

NYRR recently announced that there will NOT be a baggage drop option at this year's NYC Marathon. This leaves runners without a way to have dry clothes, gear, cell phones, medication, and nutrition waiting for them at the finish-line. This practice is standard at nearly every major racing event and eliminating this ammenity is a major inconvenience to every participant.

      I sweat profusely when I run and will be soaking wet when I finish - I want to change my top so I can stop shivering! This is my first marathon; if London can manage baggage why can't NY?
