Just two official runs left!! The season has flown by, but what can you expect when we are the FLYING Irish?!?!The weather is certainly trying to make it difficult but we will keep flying! This week we meet at Ripples for the last regular run of the season and then the following week (11/27) which is also Thanksgiving. Yes, we run Thanksgiving but its a special run. We do the Turkey Trot at Manito Park (free) at 9am. But to get your run counted you need to show up to the Starbucks on 14th and Grand between 8-845am or find the Flying Irish tent at Manito Park to sign the attendance sheets. Then of course you can run and then gorge yourself!! Whoohoo!

You have a weekend of rest of your eating and then we party it down with the End of the Year Party. We celebrate our good times throughout the season and meeting new friends. Also lots to win that night including $400 of Southwest Airline tickets and two-night stay at any Red Lion hotel. Plus, we also have the Board election going on that night! A night to remember!!

Its cold out but we have two things to help you out get out there and stay warm. First off, the 50-run sweatshirts are in so if you were waiting for one this is your week to pick one up. But if you are looking to keep your ears warm we have that covered for you with the new Flying Irish beanies. They are available in short time!
