After all those runs and miles you put in over the past Flying Irish season its time to reward yourself and pack on all those calories that you lost.  But before that, there is one last official run for the 2014 Flying Irish.  Thursday morning is the Turkey Trot and it counts as a Flying Irish run.  So, in order for you to have the Turkey Trot count as a Flying Irish run you need to:

Show up at the Starbucks at 13th and Grand BLVD 8-8:45am Thursday morning OR at the Flying Irish tent at Manito Park.  The run is at 9am.  Sign in at the Starbucks, warm up with a coffee or hot chocolate and then head-up to the duck pond atManito Park for the free Turkey Trot.  Canned goods to be donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank are highly encouraged.  Please show-up on time so as to have your run counted!  Make sure to wear your Flying Irish shirt to help represent!!

It looks like some relatively mild weather for the run so no reason not to show.  Plus, we want to end the season on a high note.  So, get out there with your shirt to show that the Flying Irish truly runs Spokane!

And after that you have you have a whole weekend of rest of eating. But then we party it down with the End of the Year Party. We celebrate our awesome 9th 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!!
