2022 Race Results

   

Seeded Runners

Seeded Runners

Top open and age-group runners are eligible for special seeded numbers. Seeded runners may be admitted after the race closing and will be allowed to start the race in the Yellow Corral immediately behind the elite athletes. Seeded runners are strongly urged to apply for seeded status prior to the opening of the lottery on January 3, 2022. The cut off date for Seeded Runners to enter the race is February 28, 2022. Note: The seeded runner qualifying times have not changed from 2021; however, due to the near shutdown of racing opportunities since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, seeded runner candidates may submit performances at events since January 1, 2020 for consideration.

Note: Seeded runners who were accepted into past CUCB races with seeded status need to resubmit proof of eligibility.

To qualify for a seeded runner entry (and skip the lottery process), please send an email to Sara Baugh at seededrunners@cherryblossom.org. Seeded runner candidates are strongly urged to apply for seeded status prior to the opening of the lottery on January 3, 2022. Applications should include the following information:

  • Name
  • Gender
  • Age and
  • Verifiable Race Results (from events 10K through 26.2 miles, and held since January 1, 2020).

Qualifying times for 10 miles are below (proof of performance since January 1, 2020 is required).

We will also accept equivalent times from other race distances from 10K through 26.2 miles – use the race calculator at https://www.hillrunner.com/calculators/race-conversion/ to see what your time in the other distance converts to for 10 miles, then see if you meet the qualifying times below (again, proof of performance since January 1, 2020 is required):
