The registration lottery for the 2012 Cherry Blossom Ten Miler opens on Thursday (Dec 1) at 10am (and closes on Dec 9). This is probably the most popular (and the hardest to get into!) race in DC (MCM being a close second on both fronts!) Anyone who has run it in the past will tell you it's also the most beautiful race in DC. Plus, at $38, it's also probably the best bargain too! Race Day is April 1.
For those not making the lottery or looking for a lower key event without all of the blossum tourists, etc. Check into the Annapolis Striders Cherry Pit 10-miler. It's hosted at my track teams high school, South River.
Event: Cherry Pit 10-miler
Date: Sunday, April 1, 2012
Again, this is a great race and highly recommended for an alternative to the 25K+ crows at CB.
I'm in for CB. The weather was perfect this past year.
