For the first time in over 40 years Bloomsday will not be run in the spring.
According to the Bloomsday website, due to the coronavirus the race is being postponed until September 20th.
"We are passionate about organizing an event that has become part of the fabric of Spokane," the organization wrote. "We cherish each and every participant and volunteer because collectively they make Bloomsday what it is, a true community celebration that connects us all to the best part of what it means to be human. We don’t want to lose that, even for a year."
The event traditionally takes place on the first Sunday of May.
