About Packet Pick-up and the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Health and Fitness Expo Presented by Wegmans
The 2024 Health and Fitness Expo Presented by Wegmans will offer packet pick-up, a full slate of exhibitors, and a full lineup of Seminar speakers inside the National Building Museum.
Pick up your race packet and t-shirt at the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Health and Fitness Expo Presented by Wegmans on Friday, April 5 (10 Mile, 5K and Kids Run) or Saturday, April 1 for the 10 Mile (reminder: there is no packet pickup on race day for the 10 Mile). The Health and Fitness Expo will also feature the latest shoes and gear from Asics and other vendors to fill all your running gear needs, and a chance to pick up official Credit Union Cherry Blossom apparel and merchandise. Race packet pick-up is only for confirmed entrants, although non-participants are invited to attend the Health and Fitness Expo Presented by Wegmans. There is no late registration, and NO PACKET PICKUP ON RACE DAY for the 10 Mile (April 7). There will be Packet Pick-up for the 5K at Freedom Plaza on race morning (April 6).

Donate Your Used Running Shoes at the Expo
In the U.S., 200 million pairs of shoes and sneakers end up in landfills each year. They languish there for 30-40 years before decomposing, and emit harmful chemicals into the soil and air in the process. We will be bringing back our popular shoe donation program this year to help your shoes avoid this fate. Just bring your running shoes with you to packet pick up and drop them off at our shoe donation booth at the Expo. From there, our partner Potomac River Running will give them a new life through GotSneakers. Please note that shoe recycling will be available at the Expo only, not on site at the 5K or 10 Mile.
Metro will be open for getting to the Expo on Saturday. 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
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 bike valet parking is located on the east lawn (4th St. side) of the National Building Museum.
There is limited on-street parking in the vicinity of the National Building Museum. Available parking will be influenced greatly by other activities taking place nearby (the Verizon Center is very close). Parking meters are enforced on both Friday and Saturday (at rates up to $2.00 an hour), so bring lots of quarters if you plan to use on-street parking.

We recommend booking convenient and affordable parking in advance through SpotHero, the nation’s leading parking reservations app.
