Description

The much anticipated Seattle Cherry Blossom Run comes to the University of Washington campus this March 25th and 26th, 2023!

Join the "Legion of Bloom" by signing up for the Cherry Blossom Run! Choose in a 5K or Half Marathon as we race, run, walk, or stroll our way through campus to the cherry blossoms!

As many already know the Quad at University of Washington is home to some of the oldest and most beautiful yoshino cherry blossom displays you'll ever see! And over 100 other cherry tree varieties exist on central campus!

Due to event size there is NO race day packet pick up on March 25th or 26th. Packet pick up locations, days, and times are still TBD!! Check on the website www.racethebloom.com later!

For those running virtually, you'll have until the end of April to run and hopefully experience cherry blossoms from wherever you are! Virtual run kits include shipping and we'll mail then out beginning mid March!

Contact us at info@runrainier.com with any additional questions or concerns.

And don't forget to tell friends and family and take advantage of group pricing! Come bloom with us! We look forward to seeing you out there.

Follow us on Instagram and hashtag us in your amazing photos for a chance to win prizes! #racethebloom #legionofbloom #uwcherryblossoms
