Coming at the "peak bloom" of DC's famous Cherry Blossom season, this year's race will include several clues that make use of this unique annual celebration in DC...but as always, they're a surprise for race day! This year's tshirt & race finisher medals will also feature commemorative Cherry Blossom designs!

After you've conquered the Challenge and snagged your finisher medal, you'll find a huge festival at the finish line. Kick back with your team and enjoy live music, our costume contest with huge cash prizes, outdoor games and great food and drink options!
