Early Entrants May Win an Apple® Watch or GoPro® HERO5 Camera

There are a little over four months until the 41st annual Lilac Bloomsday Run, and to help fortify New Year’s resolutions to get in shape, early bird registration for Bloomsday is now open at www.bloomsdayrun.org. Those who sign up by February 12th will have a chance to win either an Apple® Watch Series 2 aluminum with sport band or a GoPro® HERO5 Black camera.

“Never mind the cold and snow,” said Lilac Bloomsday Association President Mark Starr. “In four months we’ll all be enjoying spring weather and gearing up for a seven-and-a-half mile romp through the streets of Spokane.”

Everyone who enters Bloomsday online through February 12th will be automatically entered in the Apple® Watch and GoPro® drawing. The early bird drawing has been going on for many years, but this is the first time winners will be able to choose between two different items.

Those signing up for Bloomsday will also have the opportunity to add a donation to World Relief Spokane, which has been selected as Bloomsday’s official charity for 2017. World Relief Spokane helps the refugee population who have fled persecution and violence and have been resettled in Spokane by the U.S. Refugee Program. Like those who gather for Bloomsday, these are runners of a sort, but they have not run for fun nor fitness nor competition. They have run for their lives. By adding a donation to your Bloomsday entry, you partner with World Relief Spokane to see this vulnerable population transformed economically, socially and spiritually.

“Bloomsday welcomes World Relief Spokane as our official charity in 2017,” said Starr. “Adding a donation to your Bloomsday entry will help World Relief Spokane restart the lives of refugee families in our community by providing resettlement assistance, employment services, microenterprise loans and immigration services.”

The 41st Bloomsday will be Sunday, May 7, 2017. Full Bloomsday details will be released in early March, at which time printed entry forms will be available at locations throughout the Inland Northwest.
