Pit Run draws
thousands of spectators, runners

By KEVIN LIMITI • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

ONEONTA — Rain had just started to drizzle in Neahwa Park, Sunday, Oct. 3, as the start of the annual Pit Run was set to begin.

But some of the runners said they were thankful for the rain as it cooled things down, making it easier for them.

There was a diverse group of runners who came from seven states other than New York, including California, Maine, New Hampshire and Virginia.

Brian Reis, 32, a Cooperstown native*, came in first place for the men’s 10K and called it a “dress rehearsal” for the Boston marathon, which he is set to run Monday, Oct. 11.
