Some races have so much clothing discarded in this manner, they collect them and donate right back to local stores or homeless shelters.
I had a friend who had the job at the Boston Marathon of collecting all the discarded gear in Hopkinton and driving it in to the finish line in Copley Square (which is a very difficult drive that day - but he got VIP parking - a great privilege here) - there was a table where they put people's stuff, alphabetically by the names you were encouraged to put boldly in it. No guarantees, but an attempt to return your gear!
