Spring into fun
After a long winter’s nap, the Spokane & Coeur d’Alene area wakes up with some amazing activities!
Hit the ground running
People from all over the Spokane area (and the world) celebrate the start of spring with Bloomsday. More than a race, it’s a community event. Live music and cheering fans keep you motivated all along the 12K course, and a staggered start ensures everyone from runners to walkers to wheelchair- and stroller-pushers can join the fun. The race takes place the first Sunday in May, but signup (and training) starts now: registration fees go up after April 21.
Kids in grades 3-7 can enjoy their own Jr. Bloomsday fun run in April.
