Wesley Glen is already making plans and preparations for the 16th Annual running of the Cherry Blossom Race.  We have now been hosting the event for eight  of its 16 year history, and the race has grown with our personal touch. Thank you for helping us continue to expand and improve this worthwhile event.  

   New for 2018???  a Photo booth? Teams?  Leprechaun/Cherry Blossom Costume Contest?  We’re open to suggestions, so please drop us an e-mail with your ideas.  

New for 2017: Amazingly enough, we have a good many participants over 70 years of age.  They have made it clear its tough to compete with 60 year old young-un’s in the great grand master category of 60+.  Therefore, remembering we should listen to our elders, we will add this year a new category, 70+ to our masters categories.  We are proud to have enough participants in these age groups to recognize them with the additional masters category!


We want to hear your suggestions for improvement, or how to enhance our event, your race experience.   So please, send me an e-mail with your ideas, suggestions, or concerns to 



All proceeds from the race are donated to Wesley Glen Ministries, a local Methodist ministry caring and providing housing for adults with developmental disabilities.  Through its Life Skills Center, Wesley Glen also hosts workshops, continuing education series, and routine meetings of community groups interested in understanding, supporting and improving the lives of individuals and families with various challenges.
