Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run Partners with MarathonFoto

As we all look for live racing and mass participation events to return, the organizers of the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run and MarathonFoto have been making plans for the next in-person edition of the classic event, which will take place in Washington, DC on Sunday, September 12.  

The Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run will be partnering with MarathonFoto to provide participant images from the 10 mile and the 5K Run-Walk. MarathonFoto has been the trusted leader in providing excellent support to races for 45 years and previously partnered with Cherry Blossom from 2002 – 2018.  This partnership will give runners many great photo opportunities to celebrate their achievements at the next Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile.

Phil Stewart commented “After having to cancel our 2020 event due to Covid-19 and dealing with the rapidly changing landscape for the 2021 race, our committee has faced an inordinately challenging year.

Within this context, it is tremendously reassuring to me to be bringing in the participant photography pros at MarathonFoto. I am confident their team will capture images which will make the event even more memorable as one of the first post-Covid-19 major races to take place.”

“Everyone on the MarathonFoto team is excited about returning to the Credit Union Cherry Blossom. Phil Stewart and his team put together a world-class race and we feel privileged to be a part of this iconic race”, said Brad Kroll, SR VP of MarathonFoto. “When live racing returns, this will be one of the first races with over 10,000 participants and we will be there to capture great images of all the participants. MarathonFoto has spent the last 18 months improving our processes and this race will be a great opportunity for us to showcase our capabilities.”
