SPOKANE, Wash.—KREM 2 News received several photos from Bloomsday runners and walkers at the event on Sunday. It was just one way social media was changing the way people race in Bloomsday.

People sent pictures on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Shriners Hospital volunteers were pushing patients in wheelchairs through the Bloomsday course. They would stop and take pictures at every mile marker.

Other participants were snapping pictures before the race even began. Some took selfies while others took group photos. Just about everywhere you looked there were racers capturing the moment.

"A lot of my friends don't come to Bloomsday so I want to show them what they're missing,” said racer Jim.

Another family stopped to post with runners in costume.

From beginning to end, participants used their phones and cameras to prove an unforgettable Bloomsday.
