About Packet Pick-up and the Health and Fitness Expo
At this time, the Expo is expected to proceed normally, with packet pick-up and a full slate of exhibitors inside the National Building Museum. Due to concerns about COVID-19, we will not be holding any clinics this year, but we expect our runner clinics to return for the April 3, 2022 event!
Masks at the Health and Fitness Expo
Mask requirements at the expo will be in line with current Washington, DC masking regulations. These regulations currently require masks to be worn at all indoor facilities, so properly worn masks will be required at the NBM. Any updates to this policy will be posted here.
Pick up your race packet and t-shirt at the Health and Fitness Expo on Friday, September 10 or Saturday, September 11 (reminder: there is no packet pickup on race day). 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. There is no late registration, and NO PACKET PICKUP ON RACE DAY.
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.
Taking Metro from the Crystal Gateway Marriott or Crystal City Marriott (our Host Hotels): The yellow line goes from CGM and CCM non-stop to Gallery Place, which is about five blocks to the National Building Museum. If you want to get closer, you can transfer at Gallery Place to a Red line train toward Glenmont and go one stop to Judiciary Square. You will exit directly opposite the NBM.
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.
To reserve a parking spot near the expo, we recommend booking convenient and affordable parking in advance through SpotHero, the nation’s leading parking reservation app. To reserve your parking spot for the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Run Health and Fitness Expo, visit the National Building Museum SpotHero Parking Page and book a spot with rates up to 50% off drive-up.
Paid parking may also be available in other nearby commercial parking lots. Rates are likely to be in the $15-$20 range. Be sure to check the hours of the commercial lots. Some of them close early. Think Metro.
