Fall Has Arrived!…Kinda
Football season is officially underway, the kids are back in school, and there’s pumpkin spice everything in the stores so it’s time for some fall running! First off, we want to thank Negative Split for bringing the noise, the funk, and the lights at last week’s Flying Irish Glow Run! And make sure to sign up for the Spokane Glow in the Park 5K on September 17th! Flying Irish members receive 20% off registration with the code FLYINGIRISH! We’ll also have a water station at the event this year so contact Cassie at firstname.lastname@example.org to help light up Spokane September 17th!
This week Fleet Feet will have Adidas in the house, we’ll head up north for the Apple Run, and afterwards, Lagunitas will be providing plenty of after-run hydration. Plus, after the run, stick around and watch some Thursday night football at the bar! See you at 6:00 PM this Thursday at Ripples!
Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day!

Wear your Irish garb, your kilt, your FI gear, whatever’s green, and get ready for the easiest theme run ever! Pus, as an added bonus, we’ll be back at our old stomping grounds; O’Doherty’s!This run will be 21 and over, so please bring your Id!

Featured Brewery: Lagunitas Brewing Company
September brings our newest beer sponsor and this month we’re happy to have Lagunitas providing after run hydration all month long! You can check out a selection of their beer right after the run! Fun fact; Lagunitas is the brewery that turned me onto IPA’s. “Good people drink good beer.” – Hunter S. Thompson
Centennial Beer Chase Registration Now Open!
On October 1st, the great folks at Cascade Relays are unveiling their newest race; the Centennial Beer Chase! It is a one-day, 50 mile running relay consisting of 12 legs that 2-6 person teams will complete. The course begins in Coeur d’Alene and finishes in Spokane, the bulk of which will follow the gorgeous Centennial Trail. Each exchange point is hosted at a brewery where the runners have an opportunity to sample local craft beer! Registration is NOW OPEN! We are excited to offer a $50 discount per team to Flying Irish members using the code flyingirish. I’m signed up, you should be too!
With race season in full swing, volunteers are needed! It’s a great opportunity to give back to the community, so bring a friend and build your race karma!
