Cherry Blossom Race Registration Deadline Is February 28, 2018— Get Your Race Entry Code Today!

The Cherry Blossom Festival is an annual rite of Spring in Washington, D.C. One of the highlights of the festival week is the annual ‘Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run’.  On a Sunday morning in early April, world class elite runners join our local area runners in a race that follows a path past cherry blossoms and around Federal monuments.

The FRB FCU sponsors the race, along with credit unions from across the country, sharing a vision of raising funds to help sick children. Since 2002, over $7.5 million has been donated to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals nationwide, Including Children’s National Medical Center in D.C., Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, and St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

Sponsoring credit unions field teams of runners in the 10 miler.  The winning Credit Union team is presented with an engraved  cup proudly held for the year. Each year, approximately 45 FRB FCU running members join our team the Rate $etters. For the competition, smaller five person sub-teams are set up, with names such as “FRBFCU ‘R Us”, “ATM’s Flow”, or “Cash Us If You Can”. “Cash Us If You Can” took 3rd place in 2017 with a team time of 3:32:04. We are proud of our runners!

In December, returning runners entered a lottery and were notified of the results. Lottery winners were able to register for the race.  If you were one of the lucky ones,  please let us know so that we can make sure that you are included as a member of one of our running teams.  If you did NOT make it through the lottery, we are here to help! Email marketing@frbfcu.org for code. The Credit Union has approximately 45 guaranteed entries to enable you to register for the race. You will receive a Credit Union Entry Code and a link to the registration site.  The Entry Fees are $45 (Ten Mile) and $35 (5K Run-walk).

Not a Runner? Make a Difference ….Volunteer

More than 700 credit union volunteers are needed on race day to ensure the smooth flow of the race. Our volunteers have helped at the start line, package pick-up area, and finish line. If you cannot run, please consider donating a little time for such a worthwhile cause, it is a lot of fun. Our CEO Theresa Trimble is volunteering, she would to see you there.
