The Yellow starting area will only be available to runners who have run 1:12 or faster in Bloomsday 2016-2022 excluding virtual times. If you have a qualifying time and list an estimated finish time of 1:12 or faster when you enter, yellow seeding should be automatically assigned to you.
If you do not have a Bloomsday 2022 time that is under 1:12, you may still qualify for the Yellow start by providing proof of your recent participation (within the past two years) in a race 5 miles or longer, with a finishing time averaging 9:40 pace or better.
