Where and when do I get my Corporate Cup Tech Tee?
Around the first part of April, your Corporate Cup team packet with your tech tees for your team members will be mailed to your team captain. To make your tech tee distribution streamlined, team captains can login into the Corporate Cup registration site to view the names of team members and their chosen tech tee size. Please try on your tech tees before personalization. We encourage each team member to wear the tech tee; however, wearing this is not required to gain entrance into the Corporate Cup start area. Rather, each member must wear his or her runner bib on the front of their tee (bibs are distributed on race weekend). Anyone not wearing a PINK corporate cup number will not be allowed to enter the Corporate Cup starting area. Please note if one of your team members registered after the registration deadline, he or she may not have his or her chosen tech tee size. However, we do our best to facilitate exchanges if possible.
Can my team personalize our Tech Tee?
Feel free to personalize your tee with your company name, individual name, or team name or motto on your tech tee. Please first make sure the tee fits the person it is intended for. We cannot accept exchanges for tees that have been personalized.
Can I exchange my Tech Tee for another size?
If you need to exchange your tech tee, and it has not been personalized, you may exchange it at the Corporate Cup check in on race weekend. If you need it earlier than race weekend, you may contact the Bloomsday office. Available sizes for exchange are subject to availability.
Where do I check in on race weekend?
Corporate Cup team members or someone else on his or her behalf (i.e. team captain, teammate, friend, relative, etc) must pick up their bib numbers at the Corporate Cup check-in located at Spokane Convention Center. All Corporate Cup team members will receive a PINK number. Each timing chip is affixed to the runner number. If you wear a number of any other color you will not be permitted to start in the Corporate Cup start area, and your results will not be counted in the Corporate Cup competition. Bibs are organized by company name, so please be prepared to give that information to the check-in volunteer.
What are the Corporate Cup check-in hours?
Corporate Cup check-in will be open the same hours as the regular Bloomsday check-in: Friday, May 5, 11:30 a.m.-8 p.m., and Saturday, May 6, 9 a.m.-6:30 p.m. For out of town entrants only, check in is offered on Sunday, May 7, 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
I registered individually before joining a Corporate Cup team. What now?
If any team member registered for Bloomsday individually prior to joining your team, make sure he or she picks up their PINK Corporate Cup number at check-in. No other runner number can be used. Without the PINK Corporate Cup number and corresponding timing chip, your team member will NOT be able to enter the Corporate Cup start area and will NOT be included in the Corporate Cup results. Make certain team members do not apply for Elite Seeding because runners who wear an "Elite" number are also deleted from Corporate Cup results. Please note: Registration fees are non-refundable.
A team member was injured. Can we make a replacement?
If a team member is injured or otherwise unable to participate, you may find a replacement for him or her. There will be a $25.00 charge for each replacement and this must be presented with the injured runner’s identification information and a completed Bloomsday registration form for the substitute runner, or runner identification if already registered (see ‘I registered individually before joining a Corporate Cup Team. What now?’) Substitutions can be performed via email to Crystal Yurick through April 18th. After April 18th, substitutions can only be done at the check-in desk on Friday and Saturday of race weekend. The exiting participant should provide their tech tee to their substitute. Tech tee exchanges may be made at the time of check-in (see ‘Can I exchange my tech tee for another size?’), Please remember, personalized tees cannot be exchanged.
Where is the Corporate Cup start line on race day for runners?
All Corporate Cup runners may start on Post and Riverside which is accessed via Post Street from either the north or the south. Please refer to the race map. You may warm up on Post Street to the north and south of the Corporate Cup start area prior to the prompt 9:00 a.m. start. Remember, your team members must wear their Corporate Cup PINK bibs (runner numbers) to gain access to the exclusive “front of the pack” Corporate Cup starting area. This start is for runners. If a Corporate Cup participant is determined to have walked within the first mile, his or her team may be subject to disqualification. Remember, this is for the safety of all Bloomsday participants.
What is a Corporate Cup gear bag and how does the transport service work?
Thanks to our Corporate Cup sponsor, Northwest Orthopedic Specialty Clinic and the Lilac Bloomsday Association, each team member will receive a sturdy and reusable athletic bag at check-in to be used on race day. Just pack all the items you will need after the race inside the zippered portion of the bag, mark the bag with your race number, and hand it to the volunteers at one of the two gear bag trucks located to the North and South of the start line. Your team members’ bags will be waiting for them at the Post-Race Party.
Can I bring a guest (non-Corporate Cup participant) to the post race party?
You may purchase additional guest tickets to the party for $25.00 per person. If your team captain purchased additional guest tickets during registration, they'll be enclosed in your Corporate Cup Team Packet mailed in early April. If you did not pre-order any tickets and would like to purchase additional guest tickets, you may purchase them online, at Corporate Cup Check-In during Bloomsday weekend, or at the Bloomsday Office (click link for map) located at 1414 N Belt St, Spokane, WA 99201, or by calling (509) 838-1579.
