Year after year, Bloomsday continues to elevate their kingdom above all other timed road races. 2018 is no different. For starters, there’s a new addition to the Bloomsday medals inspired by scenes along the course, an image anyone who’s done Bloomsday should recognize. The 2018 medal is a rendering of the VULTURE at the top of Doomsday Hill, dutifully performed each year since 1987 by Bill Robinson. For the eighth year, souvenir medals can be purchased during online registration or at the Bloomsday trade show.

Bloomsday has also streamlined their app that allows family and friends to use live tracking to locate participants. The app still does everything the app did last year: allowing instant access to the latest on event schedules, course maps, getting around, what to do in Spokane, results, social sharing and more. But the app is enhanced for alerts and tracking. Last but not least, Bloomsday has also created several Snapchat geofilters. From the start line to the finish line and everywhere in-between, participants will be able to add filters to their snaps. Bloomsdayrun.org. //
