Cider Run

On The Mend, Rescued Puppies At Cider Run

FUNDRAISER PERHAPS BIGGEST EVER

On The Mend, Rescued

Puppies At Cider Run

At this morning’s annual Cider Run in Fly Creek, Oneonta’s Becca Daly, a Susquehanna Animal Shelter staffer, tickles Penelope, one of the nine dogs among the 101 animals rescued from a Garrattsville farm last weekend.  Also on hand at the SAS fundraiser was Lucy, another of the Collie mix canines being housed at the shelter until charges of torture and injury to animals against the farm’s owners are resolved.  At right, three Oneontans, Tom Slicer, Wayne Allen II and Brandon Gardner lead off the 10K event, which is hosted by the Fly Creek Cider Mill.  SAS Director Stacie Haynes said the crowd could have been a record — both the parking lots on Route 26 and across from the cider mill were filled — but the full count wasn’t in yet.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

To Benefit Animal Shelter, 400 Run Fly Creek Roads

To Benefit Animal Shelter,

400 Run Fly Creek Roads

Part of the Ainsley’s Angels of America Oneonta chapter, top photo, Kaitlyn Watson pushes brother Connor at the start of the 5K piece of this morning’s Cider Run, underway at this hour in the roadways around the Fly Creek Cider Mill. With her is the dad of the Oneonta family, Rodney, left. The event is a benefit for the Susquehanna Animal Shelter, and director Stacie Haynes must be pretty convincing: She convinced Darren Marriott, Springfield Center, lower left, to dress in a dog costume as the event’s mascot. Liam Mott, 2, of Westford, lower right, decided to ride his vehicle in the foot-powered competition. Haynes said about 400 runners registered for the 5K and 10K event, not a record but pretty good, and she expects about $10,000 will be raised for the countywide shelter. (Jim Kevliin/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.
