Bloomsday 2012! Spokane's Pride and Joy!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Inland Empire 77217

Spokane Wa. home of the largest foot race is proud to present Bloomsday 2012!

The official website is www.bloomsdayrun.org 

Over 50,000 people run and walk this amazing race. It's truly a sight to behold, and floods of color line the gorgeous streets of Spokane Wa. The run is 7.46 miles, and the course closes downtown Spokane for the morning, while thousands of cheering fans line the entire course of the race.

My family has participated on every level from running ( not me, but my husband and son) to playing live music along the street (my boy's band) and this year I am volunteering at the corporate cup tent. Last year my daughter handed out t-shirts. 

The Spokane River is a gorgeous back drop for part of this world famous race.

As a native Spokanite, and a life-long resident- I am so proud of this race, and how it has brought life into our community, both increasing wellness awareness, and flooding our community with people from all over who boost the local economy.

A BIG HUGE THANK YOU to all who work so hard to make this race possible!

Beth Ann,

Our youngest son is a runner, he got his Mom to start and his Aunt is a marathon runner.  These events are a great way to promote a community..

Thanks for sharing BethAnn,

I have never heard of this race before.  I am an avid runner so I am going to put this one on my bucket list!

Hi BethAnn, It was another great day and I finished my 36th Bloomsday.  There are only 105 perennials left -- we have run them all.  Best wishes for Mothers Day.   Jack
