Race Description

The Lilac Bloomsday Run is one of North America’s classic road races, and the second largest road race in the nation, with over 50,000 entrants each year. In its 38-year history over a million-and-a-half runners, joggers and walkers have crossed the finish line. Its Olympic caliber field has included many of the sport’s biggest names, like Frank Shorter, Bill Rodgers, Anne Audain, Jon Sinclair, Colleen De Reuck and Henry Rono. But just as important is the participation of thousands of citizen runners, who navigate a course that weaves back and forth across the Spokane River gorge. The infamous “Doomsday Hill” is known around the globe. Nearly 30 on-course entertainers create a festive atmosphere along the 7-1/2 miles. And the chance to earn a coveted Bloomsday finisher’s T-shirt—the color and design of which are kept secret until the finish—keeps participants of all abilities moving toward the dramatic finish line above the falls in downtown Spokane.
