The series of running (and walking) events started in 1983 and today takes place in cities all over the world to raise money for breast cancer research. The event was first held in Spokane in 2006. Based on prior years, the event expected up to 11,000 participants in 2011.
Update: KREM, a race sponsor, said 8,700 runners in 2011. Oddly, the SR “hides the decline” with its peculiar report saying “about 9000” and then later in their story says “close to last years” total of 8,800. But never gives us the actual number for 2011. That’s bad reporting.
