WVS Cherry Blossom 5 Mile Run/Tim Thomas Memorial/1 Mile Fun Walk: race description

Come join us for the 42nd annual Cherry Blossom and 13th annual Tim Thomas Memorial 5 mile run.

Let's celebrate spring in NEPA! This event will be held at Kirby Park when the stunning cherry trees are in full bloom.

This race is in memory of Tim Thomas and scholarships in his name will be awarded to the top male and top female high school runners.

A one mile fun walk will also be held.

For giveaways, we plan on offering each entrant a choice of various Wyoming Valley Striders swag.

Light refreshments will be served after the race.

Club members receive a $2.00 discounted entry fee when using the Cherry Blossom coupon code that will be emailed in early March.

The race directors reserve the right to accept or reject any entry.

Entry fee is not refundable.


Awards


Special trophies to the top male and female finishers. Medals to at least the top 3 males and top 3 females in each age group. Ten year age groups will be split into 2 five year age groups if there are enough entries. No awards for the fun walk.
