Make Bloomsday your New Year’s resolution!
Bloomsday ’13 — May 5, 2013. The early bird gets the… iPad® mini
We hope you’ve had an enjoyable holiday season, and that you’re looking forward to spring. Spring, after all, is just around the corner, and with spring comes the 37th annual Lilac Bloomsday Run. To help fortify New Year’s resolutions to get in shape, early bird registration for Bloomsday is now open atwww.bloomsdayrun.org.
Those who sign up by February 10th will have a chance to win one of three Apple® iPad minis courtesy of our friends at Strong Solutions—an Apple Authorized Reseller and Service Provider in Spokane at 1718 E Sprague Ave.
Register Now Win an iPad mini
Everyone who enters Bloomsday online through February 10, 2013, will be automatically entered to win one of three 16GB Wi-Fi Apple iPad minis.
Note for Corporate Cup participants: You’ll need to wait until 9:00 a.m. on February 4, 2013, to register, but you can start organizing your team now since only 250 teams will be allowed to register. And you’ll want to get all your team members signed up as soon as possible after February 4th (but no later than the 10th) so they’re eligible to win an iPad mini. Learn more.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Center—official Bloomsday 2013 charity
Those signing up for Bloomsday will have the opportunity to add a donation to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Family Outreach Center. The MLK Center is a regionally recognized community social service center providing comprehensive education, social services and cultural enrichment programs for children and families. At a time when the non-profit sector has been severely affected by the economic recession, your contribution will help the MLK Center continue to fulfill its mission to the community.

Lots of benefits when entering online
Registering online has its advantages! The following benefits are available to online registrants:
  • If you registered online last year, you’ll be able to re-register runners from 2012 with a few clicks of your mouse! Runner data will be conveniently pre-filled for you to confirm or update. Now that’s easy!
  • Instant confirmation of your registration. Don’t wait until race weekend to find out if your registration was received or not. Register online and you’ll receive instant confirmation and a receipt you can print.
  • Want your family & friends to start together in the same color group? When registering multiple runners in one order, you’ll have the option to designate that all runners registered during that session start together in the same color group.
  • Receive notice of your color group and bib number about one week before the big weekend. Available only for online entrants.
  • Bloomsday Souvenir Results Booklet: For only $3 when you register online, you can have the Bloomsday Souvenir Results Booklet mailed to you after the race. A great keepsake!
