(Note: If you are doing the Double Blossom – 5K and 10 Mile – and you pick up your 5K bib at Freedom Plaza on race morning, you will still need to go to the Expo at the National Building Museum after the 5K to pick up your 10 Mile bib. There will not be any 10 Mile packets at Freedom Plaza)
We understand that personal scheduling limitations may mean you must come at a different time. However, if a decent percentage of entrants adhere to this schedule, it will ease the flow for everyone.
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!
Runners who pre-ordered the ASICS performance upgrade shirts can pick them up at the Health and Fitness Expo on Friday or Saturday. They will not be available at the race site on Sunday. Upgrade orders (including sizes) are indicated in the email with your confirmation. Remember ASICS upgrade shirts replace the standard participant shirt; you will not receive both. If you did not purchase an upgrade in advance, you may purchase one at the CUCB Official Merchandise booth.
There will be a t-shirt exchange located on the first floor of the National Building Museum where participants will have an opportunity to exchange either their cotton participant shirt or their performance upgrade shirt if it is the wrong size based on availability. We do not guarantee that all sizes will be available but in previous years the t-shirt exchange worked quite well.
There will be no packet pick-up and no t-shirt pick-up at the 10 Mile race site on Sunday, April 2.
