Ironically, Frostbite 5K

Postponed Due To Cold

With burning lungs and ice-encrusted eyebrows, John Ellis, Oneonta, Aaron Stary, Laurens, Kye Breier, Davenport, and Mike Hamlton, Oneonta, finish their run along Ford Ave early this afternoon after completing run in temperatures below 0°. The friends had turned out for the YMCA’s annual Frostbite 5K race, only to discover it had been postponed until a later date due to the weather. Not to be deterred, the group decided to run the course anyway in a race they aptly named the “Frost Spite 5K”. A new race date will be announced soon.(Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)

Cider Run Directional Hiccup Had Runners

Crossing Finish Line in Both Directions

Despite some wrong course directions that had people crossing the finish line both ways, annual Cider Run hosted hundreds of runners, marking for many, the start of the outdoor running season. (Ian Austin/ allotsego.com)
The Annual Cider Run at the Fly Creek Cider Mill began like any other, but as runners began to cross the line in opposite directions, it was clear that somewhere on the course there had been a wrong turn! As more runners came in the issue seemed to correct itself and had many runners laughing.  Despite everything, the weather was clear and crisp for the hundreds of runners who turned out to run in the crisp spring air.
