Bloomsday releases list of best 2019 corporate team names

The 43rd Annual Bloomsday race is on Sunday!

Recently, a team of sponsors and organizers, including KXLY4’s own Kris Crocker, sat down to find the best Bloomsday Corporate Cup team names.

This year, the panel chose from a pool of nearly 350 teams, and 29 finalists were selected for their creativity and witty word play. That list can be found below.

“Our judges came fully prepared with research in hand this year,” said Corporate Cup Director Sarah Ranson. “We had fun learning new terminology and laughing over some of the creative play on words some teams submitted. The competition was stiff and the group had a difficult time choosing the top three.”

The battle each year for the top team name is almost as competitive as the actual Corporate Cup itself, and the prizes are just as coveted. The first, second, and third place winners will be announced in the results after Bloomsday, and the first place team will receive a plaque and will be honored guests at the annual awards luncheon.

Last year’s winner was Kaiser Aluminum’s “Aluminumb to the Pain,” topped the Spokane Symphony’s “Running Against the Winds” (second place) and Drywall Specialties’ “Smooth Finishers” (third place).

Although registration is now closed for the Corporate Cup, runners still have time to register for Bloomsday. More information can be found on the race’s website.
