ONEONTA – This year, Sid Parisian says, any day in October can be Race Day.
The 27th annual Pit Run, known as “The Best Day in Oneonta,” has gone virtual, allowing racers to run the 5 or 10K any day in October, along any course of their choosing.
“When we first started talking about this year’s race, we were hoping everything would have calmed down,” he said. “But it’s not safe, so holding it virtually will allow people to continue their streak, or get new people involved.”
The race commemorates Ricky J. “Pit” Parisian, the State Police Investigator who was killed in 1994 as he tried to stop a robbery.
