Sorry, registration for Jr. Bloomsday is now CLOSED!

Jr. Bloomsday will be run virtually again this year and modeled to some degree after our super popular Fit For Bloomsday program. Jr. Bloomsday is proud to once again partner with Active4Youth.

Here is how it will work:

  • Registration is $20. Jr. Bloomsday is open to kids ages 8-14 (grades 3-7). Sorry, registration for Jr. Bloomsday is now CLOSED.
  • The participation window for Jr. Bloomsday will be April 1 through April 30.
  • On March 31, each parent/guardian of a Jr. Bloomsday entrant will receive via email the Jr. Bloomsday running calendar for the month of April. Beginning April 1st, your child will record each day that they run in the month of April. To fulfill a day of running, Jr. Bloomsday entrants must run a minimum of 10 minutes per day. They will handwrite their running directly on the calendar. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to post the calendar on the refrigerator or other high visibility location to remind their young racer!  Please note:   if your child is more comfortable doing a light jog or walking, that is fine too.  This program is designed to encourage, and also motivate, fitness and physical activity.  
  • From May 1 through May 10, parents/guardians will then assist their Jr. Bloomsday participant in mailing or emailing their completed running calendar back to Bloomsday. 
  • Children will earn these awesome prizes for each 5-day increment of running in the month of April:

5 days of total running – FREE slush from Sonic!  Sonic Logo

10 days of total running – FREE Ben & Jerry’s ice cream!  Ben and Jerry's

15 days of total running – FREE Papa Murphy’s mini-pizza!  Papa Murphys

20 days or more of total running – FREE ticket to Silverwood Theme Park!  Silverwood Theme Park

Run 20 or more days and receive EVERY prize!  All entrants of Jr. Bloomsday will also receive a Jr. Bloomsday t-shirt!

Yes . . . this is quite possibly the best youth fitness program in the country! And it’s only $20!

Three limited edition BLOOMSDAY VULTURE SHIRTS will also be awarded to the best decorated calendars! Kids are encouraged to color and illustrate their calendars.


In early June, your child’s finisher packet will arrive in the mail with their shirt and prizes.

When registering for Jr. Bloomsday please make sure you provide your correct MAILING ADDRESS and EMAIL ADDRESS as both will be important in communicating with you and receiving the finisher prize packet.
