Check out the 2022 Bloomsday finisher shirt

Finisher Shirts

SPOKANE, Wash. — This year’s Bloomsday finisher t-shirt has been revealed, and many have already received theirs for crossing the finish line!

4 News Now’s Aaron Luna and Alex Crescenti showed off their coral-colored shirts after finishing the race.


The shirt features this year’s numbers in big, bold numbers and depicts the sights of downtown Spokane’s Riverfront Park attractions like the Clocktower and Pavilion, along with the Spokane River and Monroe Street Bridge.

This year’s shirt was designed by Spokane artist Emerald Dumas, a freelance graphic design artist who has been running Bloomsday since 2009. 

“I love the tradition of Bloomsday and for the shirt design I wanted to incorporate the iconic landmarks of Spokane but in a fun, bright way,” Dumas said. “When I got the call, I was definitely surprised and excited, and of course I couldn’t tell anyone, which for me is quite difficult because my family is so supportive.  They know that I entered a design, which made it incredibly challenging once they started asking me if my design was chosen.” 

Dumas also designed the official Bloomsday race medal, too. The secret finisher shirt was revealed after the starter pistol fired for the first race, a tradition that dates back to the first ever Bloomsday race.
