(RRW) Athletics: At $15 Bloomsday Is A Bargain

Registration for the 2010 Lilac Bloomsday Run is open, and at $15 is one of the great bargains in American road racing.

"New Year's resolutions often include a vow to get in better shape," said Lilac Bloomsday Association President Jerry O'Neal through a news release. "It should help solidify that commitment by signing up now for a 7-1/2 mile (12 km) journey through the streets of Spokane on the first Sunday in May."

Held in the eastern Washington city of Spokane since 1977, the Lilac Bloomsday Run has grown to be the third-largest, fully-timed road race in the United States. The 2009 edition had 45,477 finishers, up 4.2% in the recent Race Results Weekly race participation analysis.

It's also one of the most affordable big races, and will hold their entry fee to the $15 level through April 18. However as an extra incentive through February 14, the event will also place the names of every runner who enters into a drawing for a trip for two for the Henry Weinhard’s St. Patrick’s Day Dash in Seattle which takes place on March 14.

The 34th Lilac Bloomsday Run will take place on Sunday, May 2. Visit for complete information.
