Last minute bib number pick-up on race day

EXPO working hours are from 10.00 to 20.00 on both days on May 17 and May 18. However, we know that some participants might be arriving in Riga just after EXPO working hours. Therefore for international runners that are running the DPD Mile on Saturday, there will be an exceptional option to pick up the bib number on May 18 at the EXPO from 8.30 – 9.45.

There is a special last-minute bib number pick-up service also provided for international runners on Sunday. For an extra fee of 5,- euros it is possible to order “start line bib number delivery” from April 3rd in your registration profile. The payment must be done in the registration profile and is offered exclusively only for international runners. The service must be paid by May 12. If the service will not be paid by the above-mentioned deadline the bib numbers will not be delivered to the start area.

On Sunday, May 19, the participants that have selected and paid for this service will be able to receive their bib numbers and their starter’s pack in the Info Centre on 11 November Embankment.

Baggage storage

Runners of the Rimi Riga Marathon will have access to a baggage storage at the Doma Square.

Please note that the baggage storage service is available only with official bags and upon prior selection. If you decide to use the baggage storage, please indicate it during the registration process or in your user profile after registration. The selection period ends on April 30th.

The storage service for bags is free of charge; however, we encourage you to evaluate its necessity, as the production of each bag, even from recycled materials, has a negative impact on the environment.
