About This Activity

The Bloomer American Legion Post 295 annual 5K Fun Run/Walk takes place on a scenic route around the community lake during spring. The course relatively flat and winds through the Bloomer community and the countryside. Participants finish the race at the community North Park. This is a not-for-profit event. All proceeds will be used to help meet the emotional, physical, and financial needs of local area veterans. The American Legion Post 295 thanks you in advance for your support!
