The Flying Irish Running Club have a lot to celebrate. Tonight, they'll kick off their seventh season of running roughly three miles around Spokane. They'll also be celebrating their new partner, Red Lion Hotels, and the inaugural run from their new home, Ripples Riverside Grill, at the Red Lion River Grill.
The Flying Irish Running Club runs every Thursday from the first of March to Thanksgiving, meeting at 5:45 pm and running at 6 pm. Participants who show up six times will be awarded the "world-famous" Flying Irish Running Club shirt in a shirting ceremony. This shirt is good for food and drink specials after the run and discounts at other locations. And besides, it's a sweet shirt!
Runs average over 350 people each week and walkers are always welcome. The Red Lion River Inn is located at 700 N. Division. Visit flyingirish.org for more information.
