Frequently Asked Questions

Need to update your mailing address after registering?

Please reply to your email receipt to let us know your new address.

Need to view your individual registrations?

Log in to your Bloomsday account and click "Order History" to view your individual registrations.

How do I check to see if I’m registered?

Use the online registration search tool to see if you are registered. You can also search for friends or family if you know their information.

Can I register for both the in-person and virtual race?

Yes! Bloomsday super fans are welcome to register for both editions of the race.

To register for both, participants will need to complete the registration process twice (selecting the virtual option in Step 3 during one of their registrations).

Can I change my assigned color group?

Until March 19, we can accommodate changes to your assigned color group. Simply contact us to request changes. However, please keep in mind that no color change is necessary if you want to MOVE BACK to join a color group that starts later than your color. But don’t line up in a color group that starts earlier than your assigned group, or you won’t be timed and you may be disqualified.

After March 19, we’re happy to accommodate your color change at race check-in. Please pick up your race bib at race check-in on Friday, April 29 or Saturday, April 30, then take it to the “Color Changes” table and they will help you make any changes needed. Please keep in mind that no color change is necessary if you want to MOVE BACK to join a color group that starts later than your color. But don’t line up in a color group that starts earlier than your assigned group, or you won’t be timed and you may be disqualified.

When does registration open, how do I enter, and how much does it cost?

You can sign up for Bloomsday beginning January 1, 2024. Registration for Bloomsday is exclusively available online and more details can be found at our registration page.

I purchased or received an E-Gift Certificate entry last November/December. How do I redeem it?

Your E-Gift Certificate came with a unique promo code on it. To receive the full promotional value of your E-Gift Certificate you must register for Bloomsday by April 20, 2024. When you are finished adding participants and are ready to pay, enter your unique promo codes (one at a time) in the "Discounts and Credits'' section BEFORE you click the green "Checkout" button. Your E-Gift Certificates promo code will allow you to register for either the in-person Bloomsday race or the Virtual Bloomsday option.

IMPORTANT: You must redeem your E-Gift Certificate's unique promo code no later than April 20, 2024, in order to receive the full promotional value of the certificate. Beginning April 20, 2024, the E-Gift Certificates unique promo code will only apply the $25 face value towards the cost of entry and you will be required to pay any balance remaining to complete your registration.

How can my family and friends get the same bib color so we can start together?

The simplest way to keep a group of runners together in the same start color group is for everyone to enter online at the same time or for one person to do all the registrations for the group. During online registration, once you click the green Checkout button, look for the "RUN AS A GROUP" option and check the box to have everyone being registered start in the same color group. By selecting this option, your group will all be seeded to the color group of the person in your group with the slowest qualifying time.
For those who don't register together with the "Run As Group" option: If you pick up your number at Check-In and you find that you’re not in the same group with people you want to participate with, keep in mind that you’re allowed to move BACK to a color group that starts later than yours. You can’t move forward to a faster color group, but it’s fine to move back. So if members of your group don’t have the same color, you don’t need to do anything other than move back on race morning to the color group of the member of your group who starts latest.
If moving back isn’t an acceptable solution for some reason, please ask volunteers at the Solutions desk at Check-In for assistance.

Are printed entry forms available?

No, as of 2020, Bloomsday registration is completely online.

Can I register on race weekend?

You may register for the in-person Bloomsday race on race weekend (Friday or Saturday)). The entry fee is $50.00 and you may register online or in-person at the Spokane Convention Center.

There is no registration on Sunday, May 1.

For Virtual Bloomsday, online registration will remain open until Sunday, May 5, 2024.

Can I change my T-shirt size, address, estimated time or other information?

Yes, just reply to the email receipt you received to let us know what information needs to change. If you don't have your email receipt, use the Contact Us form.

Note: T-shirt selections do not need to be corrected (we use the information to place the order, but you can select any size you want at T-shirt distribution after you finish).

Can I sign someone else up for Bloomsday?

Yes, as long as you have all the information requested, and you have authorization from the person you're signing up to e-sign the waiver.

I'm a walker. Do you accept walkers?

Yes! Well over half of Bloomsday participants walk the course.

Do you accept baby strollers and wheelchairs?

Yes! But…both operators and occupants must be officially entered by paying the entry fee.

For safety reasons, operators and occupants of strollers, Baby Joggers, and non-competitive wheelchairs MUST line up in the Red section and MUST WALK the entire course. In addition, anyone with a Red number, even if not pushing a stroller or chair, must walk the entire course. Any operator or occupant of a stroller or wheelchair, and anyone wearing a red number, whose net finish time is faster than 1:40 will not be timed and may be disqualified.

I'm pushing my child in a stroller. Do I have to register the child?

Yes, all participants, whether running, walking or being pushed MUST register for Bloomsday. While it may seem like overkill -it is important in case of emergencies.

We have youth size shirts for young registrants. Our youngest Bloomies may not be able to wear that shirt now, but he or she will thank you for it some day!
