The 2nd Annual Cherry Blossom Run is about to go down. Another beautiful 5k run/walk under the cherry blossoms at the Oregon Capitol Mall. The course simply cruises around the Capitol Mall, Wilson Park, WWII Memorial and returns for a lap under the blossoms on the mall to the beat of the Japanese taiko drummers. It is spring, and it’s time to get pumped up!  A special visitor is planning to attend.  Take your picture with him…if you can catch up.

Kids Race: There will be a 1/2 mile race for kids aged 6 and under (that are not entering the 5k). This race is free. To enter the free kids race, parents just need to sign the waiver at the registration desk. Kids who want to run the 5k course need to sign up normally on this website.

Hand-made awards for the top 3 men and women overall, and top 3 male and female masters.

The Cherry Blossom Festival continues from 10am after the race with various displays, vendors, and performances. This is the perfect time to get your picnic together and enjoy the only State Park in central Salem. 

Here is the fine print: No refunds or transfers. Sign up early for best prices. Strollers are welcome but please leave dogs at home.  $15 per person in advance. $20 on the day of the race.
