Spokane’s Bloomsday race a worldwide virtual event in 2021

The Lilac Bloomsday Association, organizers of the annual Bloomsday race in Spokane, Washington, is hosting a virtual event for 2021 because of continuing restrictions on large gatherings from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 45th annual event, called Bloomsday Worldwide 2021, is open to runners and walkers from everywhere. Here’s how it works:

  1. Register on the Bloomsday website, personalize your race bib, and pay the entry fee of $24.49. The entry fee includes two $10 coupons, one for Safeway|Albertson’s supermarkets and one for ACE Hardware coupon. Race bibs and the coupons will be mailed in early April. If you register by March 13, your name will be printed on a souvenir race number.
  2. From Friday, April 30 through Sunday, May 9, run or walk any 12-kilometer (7.46-mile) course you want. When you finish, report your time on the Bloomsday Results Portal on the Bloomsday website. The portal opens on April 30.  
  3. The Lilac Bloomsday Association will mail your official finisher shirt and postcard to everyone who finishes the race in late May.
