Colorado State University’s Clear Bag Policy

We celebrate in CSU’s house, and we need to follow their house rules.


The CSU Clear Bag Policy will be strictly enforced at Sonny Lubick Field and Canvas Stadium. They allow you to bring one clear bag no bigger than 12 inches x 6 inches x 12 inches (or a one-gallon resealable clear plastic bag) into the stadium. Small camelbacks (with size restrictions 14.4 x 10 x 2.4 in / 36.5 x 25.4 x 6.1 cm), fanny packs no larger than 4.5 x 6.5 inches, small clutches no larger than 4.5 x 6.5 inches, flip belts, and medically necessary items will be allowed in the stadium. We have aid stations available that serve water and lunch bags at the finish line, as well as other food and beverages that can be purchased. Clear bags are the norm at athletic venues across the nation, they increase participant safety and decrease waiting time to enter stadiums.

Gear Check
Our Gear Check will be available near the start line beginning at 7:00am. If you need to store something on race day, leave it with us at the start line and then pick it up near the finish. The Gear Check will move to the finish at the corner of Lake and Meridian (south side of stadium) at 8:35am and will close at 12:00pm. Gear Check tickets are available as an add-on during registration and are available on race day. We want everyone to have what they need on race day. Plan ahead and help us keep all of the FORTitude participants, volRUNteers and spectators safe! We ask that you don’t store valuables at Gear Check. Any clothing left on the ground or fencing in the start area will be immediately donated to charity.
