Get Your Glow On!

Way back in March, you may remember  Negative Split was in the house and brought all the lights, music, and swag for our St. Patrick’s Day celebration.  Well, to gear up for their upcoming Spokane Glow in the Park 5K on September 17th, we decided to do it again this Thursday for our very own Flying Irish Glow Run!  Our friends at Negative Split will once again be in the house with tunes, lights, and all the excitement you’ve come to expect from this great organization, so get your glow sticks, neon, or your Christmas lights as they’ll be giving away awards for best neon/glow gear!  Plus, they’re offering 20% off registration to Spokane’s Glow in the Park event with the code FLYINGIRISH!  We’ll also have a water station at the event this year so contact Cassie at to help light up Spokane September 17th!  All this plus after run hydration courtesy of Lagunitas! See you at 6:00 PM this Thursday at Ripples!

 Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day!

It’s nearly halfway to our favorite holiday, so we thought we’d celebrate with a Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day run on September 22nd!  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!

2016 Shriners Hospital Duck Waddle 5K

This is a fun, family oriented, timed 5k through Spokane’s Riverfront Park that starts at the floating stage!  Registration is only $20 plus you can get $5 off with the discount code FLYINGIRISH.  This year all entrants over 21 have a chance to win a trip for two to Las Vegas!  After the race, stick around for the El Katif Rubber Duck race down the river at 2:00pm.

 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
