Only 7 Runs Left!
It never rains on the Flying Irish…unless it does, but all of you die-hards who braved the rain last week earned yourselves a double run! We even had two presidential candidates make an appearance (who were far nicer to each other than in real life) to help celebrate a big 200th run milestone!
It was another big race weekend, most notably the Spokane and Portland Marathons were this past Sunday. We love to see Facebook full of so many of our friends’ race photos every week so keep it up! Congratulations to you all!
This week, we’ll Run to the Lights, Fleet Feet will have Mizuno in the house, and afterwards, Deschutes Brewery will be providing plenty of after-run hydration and swag. After the run, stick around and watch some Thursday night football at the bar! Only 7 runs remain until the end of the regular season, so be sure to hit up the remaining runs and get those milestones you’ve been chasing all year! See you at 6:00 PM this Thursday at Ripples!
Featured Brewery: Deschutes
Deschutes Brewery is back again as our beer sponsor for October and will be providing us with after-run hydration all month long! You can check out a selection of their beer right after the run! “Good people drink good beer.” – Hunter S. Thompson
The Flying Irish Halloween Party is Coming!
Join us October 27th for our annual Halloween Party! DJ Marathon will be in the house with plenty of music and dancing, we’ll have games, awards for best male and female costume, and giveaways courtesy of Deschutes Brewery! Get those costumes ready!

The night is dark and full of runners so it’s time to think about visibility as night is coming earlier and earlier. We’ve got our awesome reflective vests and jackets for sale, so stop by during the run and pick one up! Be safe, be seen, and be stylish!
