You don't want to miss this very special edition of Pint Society...we'll be running with trail running legend Anton Krupicka! Join your hosts Fleet Feet Sports PDX and Stance for a 5-6 mile run in Forest Park with Anton Krupicka, an American ultra-runner who has won the Leadville 100 twice, the Miwok 100K, the Rocky Raccoon 100 Miler, the Collegiate Peaks 50 Miler, the White River 50 Miler twice, the High Mountain 50k, and the Estes Park Marathon. We'll start at our Portland store, run into the park, and end at Lucky Labrador Brew Pub on Quimby. Post-run, grab a brew with Anton and our friends from Stance...the first $200 of beer is on Stance!

Join us for an evening of trail talk with ultramarathoner Krissy Moehl! This is a can't-miss event for anyone training for their first (or 50th!) ultra...and promises to be fun and informative for runners training for any distance! We'll kick things off with a Forest Park run with Wy'east Wolfpack at 6:30pm, then head back to our Portland store for a reading from her book "Running Your First Ultra" and Q&A with Krissy. The reading will start at 7:30pm - come on down for the run, the reading, or both! Krissy is generously offering a gift-with-purchase when you buy her book at the event and (you know us!) there'll be beer for everyone of age. Special bonus: we're unveiling a brand-new, limited-edition tshirt at the event you won't want to miss...trust us, you'll want to get your hands on this awesome, local, exclusive design!
