About the Health and Fitness Expo
Pick up your race packet and t-shirt at the Health and Fitness Expo on Friday, April 1 or Saturday, April 2. The Health and Fitness Expo will also feature free informative clinics with a variety of speakers to help you perform your best on race day, as well as New Balance and other vendors to fill all your running gear needs and a chance to pick up official Credit Union Cherry Blossom apparel and merchandise. There will be special guest speakers in recognition of the 44th running of the race.
The National Building Museum is easily accessible by Metro. The Judiciary Square Metro stop is across the street from the main entrance to the National Building Museum and is served by the Red Line. Use of Metro is strongly encouraged.
Bike Valet Service
This year as part of our greening initiative we are providing a free “Bike Valet” service at the Health & Fitness Expo. Simply ride your bike to the expo and leave it with the representatives from Two Wheel Valet. They will guard your bike to ensure that it is safe while you pick-up your bib, shop our vendors and enjoy the festivities. It’s like a coat check for bikes!
The Health & Fitness Expo will be open to the public during packet pick-up from 3:00 to 8:00 P.M. on Friday, April 1, and from 9:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M. on Saturday, April 2. There will be a Credit Union Cherry Blossom Official Merchandise store featuring special Credit Union Cherry Blossom apparel sold by New Balance, as well as hats, mugs, posters and other commemorative items. The Health & Fitness Expo will also feature booths sponsored by running-related companies and organizations, including apparel manufacturers and retailers; nutritional product suppliers; other major races; running clubs; and various charities. Finally, there will be a full slate of clinic speakers on both days of the expo.
Picking Up Someone Else's Packet
You may have someone else pick-up your bib number on Friday or Saturday at the Health and Fitness Expo at the National Building Museum. The person getting your number will need a note from you (a copy of an email is fine), ID for himself or herself, and will be required to provide his or her email address and sign a statement that the number will be used only by you. If the number is transferred, you will be denied entry into future editions of the race. We regret being heavy-handed here, but unauthorized bib transfers represent a real scoring and security issue for us. PLEASE DO NOT send the note authorizing someone to pick up your packet to us at the Credit Union Cherry Blossom. The person picking up your packet should bring the note (a printout of an email is fine) with them to the Expo!
There will be no packet pick-up and no t-shirt pick-up at the race site on Sunday, April 3.
