Status Update of Cherry Blossom 10K by Japan American Society of Greater Philadelphia (April 11, 2020)

The Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia is closely monitoring the coronavirus situation as well as the evolving local and federal guidelines.

We are in discussion to reschedule the Cherry Blossom 10K to a later date and are in the process of confirming details. We will update runners with the status of the race and refund policy as soon as we are able and will send out an update to all participants on Wednesday, March 18. Thank you for your patience and understanding with this rapidly evolving situation.

We hope you will be able to run with us when details are finalized.
