FRANKFORT RUNNER SETS RECORD

Race-Lake Marathon

Won Under 3 Hours

At Hubbell’s Cove on West Lake Road, four pals from Brooklyn cheer runners in this morning’s Race The Lake Marathon, sponsored by the Clark Sports Center.  The two Hubbell sisters, Laura, left, and Jennifer are Cooperstown natives, home for the weekend with David Barrionuevo, left, and Hassan Taimur.  Wellwishers were lined up around Otsego Lake, as Cornelius Deep of Frankfort, in right photo, ran the 26-mile marathon in 2:56, 12 minutes better than last year’s winner Peter Buffington’s 3:05.38.  Runners came from 15 states, a record, said Doug McCoy, the Clark’s special events organizer.  Stamford’s Sean O’Connor won the half-marathon, and Laura Batalis, North Reading, Mass., took the 5K, with Cooperstown’s Henry Horvath coming in second.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

Otsego County Runners

Dominate Half-Marathon

Clark Sports Center photographer Emily Kishbaugh, top, documents Cooperstown’s Nancy Potter’s completion of the Race the Lake Marathon Saturday, which started and ended at Glimmerglass State Park. While Nancy wasn’t in the top 10, local runners dominated the half-marathon results, claiming the top five spots:  Nick Arnecke, Edmeston, first; Wayne Allen, Oneonta, second; Brett Fritts, Springfield Center, third; Andrew Rock, Cooperstown, fourth, and Kara Arnold, Cooperstown, fifth.   Peter Buffington, Winter Springs, Fla., won the full marathon in 3:08:38, but Cooperstownian Todd Baum was second, finishing in 3:16:03.   The Race the Lake again collaborated with OCCA, which held its Otsego Lake Fest at the Glimmerglass Pavilion.  At right, Paul Lord, the SUNY Oneonta biology professor and Biological Field Station mainstay alerts passersby to the latest invasive scourge: Herbilla.  It isn’t here yet, said Lord, but let’s be vigilant to keep it that way.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
