Capitol Hill Competition
The Race within the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10-Mile Run
The Credit Union Cherry Blossom Run will be held in-person on September 12, 2021!
Capitol Hill Competition Registration is Now Open!
The Capitol Hill Competition was founded 19 years ago as a spirited race between House and Senate staff offices, agencies, and committees. Runners form teams in either the House or Senate division and compete for the coveted Congressional Cup. The trophy is presented to the single fastest overall team that represents a Representative’s or Senator’s office.The top three teams in each division will also receive both team and individual honors.
In 2002, credit unions started sponsoring the run and nationwide have collaborated in the cooperative spirit to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. In this time the Capitol Hill Competition and Cherry Blossom Ten-Mile Run have raised over $9.5 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals here in DC and throughout the country.

Through Saturday July 31, you may register online as a Team in the 10-mile run or as an individual for the Ten Mile Run or the 5K Run-Walk (there is no competition for the 5K).
If you will be running on a team in the 10-Mile Run the registration process consists of two steps:
STEP 1: Set-up the team.
When setting up the team the Team Captain will name the team (awards given for most creative team name) and pay the one-time only $20 team registration fee (+ service charge). The team fee is only paid once by the Team Captain; individual team members pay only the $50 individual registration fee to join the team. If the captain will be running on the team, he or she will have the opportunity to register as an individual affiliated with that team at the time the team is created.
The Team Captain does not have to be running the race and may set-up more than one team. Once the team has been created the Team Captain should let all of the prospective team members know the name of the team. Click here to read full details about the composition of House and Senate Teams.
STEP 2: Team members register as individuals.
Once the team is set-up team members can register as individuals. Each registrant will be responsible for the $50 individual registration entry. During the registration process, prospective team registrants will have an opportunity to affiliate with any team that has been set-up in advance.
Capitol Hill packet pick-up will take place Thursday, September 9 between 11:30 am and 2:00 pm at a to-be-determined location.
Please bring your race email confirmation with you to facilitate packet pick-up, or download the free Official Credit Union Cherry Blossom app for the iPhone, iPad or Android which will enable you to look your bib number up on your phone. Team captains will be able to confirm your teams as well. Details on this year’s special guest will be announced here soon!
