Come join us for the 45th annual Cherry Blossom 5 Mile Run and 16th annual Tim Thomas Memorial 1 Mile Fun Walk.

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 will be awarded to a high school senior boy and girl runner.

This race is the middle leg of the Wyoming Valley Striders Vince Wojnar Triple Crown Race Series.  (Is it too late to sign up?)

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.
