Fernie was well represented this year at the 36th annual Lilac Bloomsday Run in Spokane, Washington.

Thirty runners and walkers from Fernie participated in the event, alongside nearly 50,000 other participants.

Participants choose to either run or walk the 12 km course but are encouraged to enjoy the route and its many musical bands along the way.

“It is a wonderful, well-organized event and the perfect spring event to start training for and get you out the door after a long Fernie winter,” said Fernie participant, Lori Kennedy.

For some this was their first time at Bloomsday, while others have been participating in the event for many years.

“Most of the Fernie participants are busy moms who look forward to the weekend away,” said Lori. “It is always a fun time and a great weekend shared with friends.”

The run is held the first Sunday every May.
