Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run
In-Person Run: Sunday, September 12, 2021
Washington Monument Grounds
7:18 A.M. – Elite Women’s Start
7:30 A.M. – Ten Mile Start
Registration for the In-Person Ten Mile Run and 5K Run-Walk on September 12 has closed.
The Ten Mile will use a wave start again this year. Runners will be assigned to a color-coded starting corral based on previous race times. Colors on bib numbers will match starting corrals. There will be six waves of approximately 2,500 runners each. The waves will start in 3-5 minute intervals. Runners outside the top 25 males and females will be scored on net times.

Seeding Times Required
In order to ensure a safe start in the 10 Mile, we will be lining up runners into six corrals based on previous race times. All entrants must provide a past 10-mile time (or a projected time based on a 10K time). If you have run the race in the last three years, we reserve the right to seed you based on the time(s) we have on file. Individuals not submitting a time will be placed in the slowest time group.
No strollers are allowed in the 10 mile run. Push-assist pairs (“duos”) are categorized as wheelchairs and are permitted in the 10 mile run.
Wearing the MyLaps Bib Tag
Runners will be timed and scored using the MyLaps Bib Tag. There is a single Bib Tag adhered on the back of your bib number. Simply leave the Bib Tag where you find it — on the back of the bib. Do not remove it. The Bib Tags are single-use.
Due to National Park Service restrictions, we can only keep the course open for a maximum of 2 hours and 20 minutes after the 7:30 A.M. start. If you cannot complete the course in under this time limit, switch to the 5K Run-Walk instead.
