Bloomsday 2007

Posted: Updated:

Granted, there is still snow on the ground in many areas, but Bloomsday 2007 is just a couple of months away.

Organizers kicked off promotion of the yearly run February 27 at a news conference in downtown Spokane.  They revealed a few changes to this year's traditional run:

  • Trade Show & Check-In will be under one roof at the new Group Health Exhibit Halls at the new convention center.
  • 1972 Olympian Kenny Moore will be a guest speaker
  • The Lilac Bloomsday Association elected a new president: Jon Neill.
  • Four new Bloomsday-themed metal sculptures will be on display, sponsored by different companies who will contribute to the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery.
  • Good Neighbor Pharmacy is a new major sponsor.
  • A new t-shirt design.  It's not a new idea, but the design changes every year, with 2007's design unveiled at the finish line on May 6.

Like last year, runners will still be timed with the use of ID chips.  Organizers are only planning minor modifications in that area. 

The finish line will once again be at the Monroe Street Bridge.

Kids who are in first grade or younger can participate in the Marmot March on May 5 at 10 a.m. in Riverfront Park.  Sign up early, as the event is limited to the first 300.
