Invited Runners 

The Lilac Bloomsday Run has a limited budget for travel and lodging expenses for top competitors. Runners who believe they have a chance of finishing in a prize money position MAY be eligible for travel and/or lodging assistance. Contact Jon Neill for further information.

As a member of the PRRO Circuit, the Lilac Bloomsday Run supports and abides by the circuit's new policy which prohibits any travel or lodging expenses being offered to an elite athlete who has been found guilty of a major doping offense and has served a suspension of two years or longer.
