Parking can be a challenge. The Congregation Gates of Heaven parking lot will be the race starting point, so it is not open for parking. Please try and park near the Temple, or utilize the parking by the tennis courts in Central Park, provided the Park is open (other events may be scheduled in the park). Car pooling with your runner or walker friends is always a great option! Don’t arrive too late.


Results & Survey

Come back to the website after the race. We’ll get results posted as soon as we can. We also ask runners, walkers, volunteers, sponsors and anyone else who participated to complete our quick survey so we can make next year’s event even better. Thank you for taking part in the Cherry Blossom 5K Race for ALS and Walk for Hope!
