We go back to where to it all started with a Legacy Run at O’Doherty’s Irish Grille for the next two weeks. And we are in such a celebratory mood so we are going to have DJ Marathon – Spokane feat. GTGM & DJ 7192rocking the house for the post run fun at this week’s. That’s right, two week’s of dancing fun. But the fun isn’t complete without the new brew from Iron Goat Brewing Co. – Flying Irish Snow Stomper. Its great and we know you will love it. AND the fun is really not complete without some snazzy shoes to try out and free swag to win from ASICS. Is it Thursday yet? Just two days away!
Speaking of free stuff, we announced last week what the end of year prize is going to be. Well, there is actually two of them. One from Red Lion and one from us. Red Lion will be throwing in hotel stay vouchers good for any of their hotels while we will be throwing in $400 worth of Southwest Airlines tickets. Plus a whole lot of other prizes! December 4th is the date for the party!
Also, the 50-run sweatshirts should be in so if you were waiting for one this is your week (most likely) to pick one up. We will be doing orders of the singlets (just a few left) and the tech hats in the spring.
Thanks to all those who came out last week for the run. It was certainly a blast with all your creative outfits. Special congrats to our two winners as well!
