Jr. Bloomsday is back! Here is what you need to know:

Get your kids ready to race!

The Lilac Bloomsday Association has decided to bring back the popular Jr. Bloomsday children’s race from the 80s and 90s.

This year’s race is open to kids in grades 3 – 7 and will take place at 9 a.m. on April 20.

Runners will start and finish the 1.25 mile race at Avista Stadium. Runners will actually finish inside the ballpark near home plate.

It’s $20 to enter and a finisher t-shirt and souvenir bracelet are included. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Active4Youth, a non-profit charity whose mission is to combat childhood obesity through the introduction of sports like running.

Registration open on February 1 and is limited to the first 3,000 kids, so act fast!

More information can be found on the Bloomsday website.
