The lottery for the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run (April 6, 2014) opens on December 2, 2013 at 10 a.m. This race looks so much fun to run, and it would be great if I were accepted.

I just got an email that: “The Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run is looking for two runners from anywhere in the United States to be this year’s ‘Credit Union Cherry Blossom Social Runners.’ These individuals will be telling the world all about their experiences with the race on Facebook, Twitter, and the official race blog.”

Of course I applied! I know there are only 2 spots available, but a girl can dream! Obsessed? Yes! Worth it? Yes!

What the selected runners get (for free):

  • Outfitted head to toe with free New Balance running gear
  • Free entry into the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run (no waiting for the lottery)
  • Free enrollment in Potomac River Running Training Program or Virtual Training Program
  • Free race upgrade t-shirt
  • Free Room at the JW Marriott Hotel race weekend for Friday and Saturday nights

If interested in applying, visit the Cherry Blossom Website. Be aware that only the first 500 applicants will be reviewed.
