2014 Bloomsday Run – Number registered, finished and percent finished

Data comes from the Bloomsday web site except for 2014, which comes from the official Bloomsday Facebook page where they posted the totals.

Participation increased from 2004 to 2011, but thereafter, the number of participants has been in decline.

  • 2011 to 2012: year over year decline of 6.4%
  • 2012 to 2013: year over year decline of 2%
  • 2013 to 2014: year over year decline of 5.5%

Total decline from the recent peak in 2012 is 13.3%. (Because of how percentages are calculated, the sum of the individual years does not equal the difference between 2011 to 2014 – so do not freak out if you add up the numbers.)
