An official injury report has not yet been released but it was a challenging year for many people in terms of the heat. Kardong says the medical tents received alot of attention.

Organizer Mark Star said it was one of the "best-run and well-attended Bloomsday events" to date and was "a phenomenal weekend for both organizers and participants."
