SPOKANE, Wash. -

If the thought of running Bloomsday doesn't appeal to you, but you still want to be part of Spokane's biggest race, then here's your chance! 

Bloomsday organizers are looking for volunteers to pass out H2O at water stations, provide first aid at the Marmot March (no marmot experience necessary), and hand out t-shirts to finishers. 

“The success of Bloomsday is totally dependent on the support of nearly 5,000 volunteers,” said Bloomsday Race Director Don Kardong. “Most of our volunteer positions don’t require much, if any, prior experience, but it’s crucial that we fill all open positions to make sure things proceed smoothly before, during and after the run.”
