The Breast Cancer Awareness Run

In case you missed it, last Saturday was the inaugural Centennial Beer Chase!  Whenever you combine running and beer you can bet the Flying Irish will show up in droves and you did not disappoint!  It was great to see you all out there and we’re already looking forward to next year!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to help raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer, the Flying Irish will be having a Pink Run this Thursday.  Wear a pink ribbon, shirt,  or headband and help show your support for all those whose lives have been affected by this disease.

This week, we’ll visit Kendall Yards, Fleet Feet will have New Balance in the house, and afterwards, Deschutes Brewery will be providing plenty of after-run hydration.  After the run, stick around and watch some Thursday night football at the bar! Only 8 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

Reflective Jackets

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!
