This weekend Downtown Spokane will be alive and buzzing with many visitors and locals getting ready for the 34th annual Lilac Bloomsday Run. (12 kilometer / 7.46 mile)
This is not only a well known event to the locals and surrounding neighbors to Spokane, but also to many elite runners as well. These elite runners come from all over the United States and many come from as far away as Africa for this road race.
Bloomsday is a three day celebration devoted to health and fitness that started back on May 1, 1977… and has shown tremendous growth, peaking to over 61,000 in 1996.
The two day trade show, starting Friday April 30, 2010, will have a showcase of fitness products, activities and events. The trade show is free to everyone. Sunday at 9am the run begins.
Our Riverfront Park in downtown Spokane, WA., will be packed with runners and spectators who will be enjoying the spectacular view of the falls, a 5 story I-max Theater, 1909 historic Loof Carousel, Gondola ride over the falls and many more.
We would like to send out Good Luck wishes to everyone participating in the Bloomsday event. We will be cheering you on as you pass by the North Coast Life building along the race course
