Reasons to register for the Virtual Pit Run:

  • Keep your Pit Run Streak alive; or begin a new annual tradition.
  • Skip the Hill, if you choose.  Run the course of your choice, including a treadmill or a track.
  • Choose whatever distance moves you, on any day up to October 4th
  • A runner’s bib will be emailed to you.  Wear it more than once if you’d like: celebrate your goals, and life in general.
  • Receive a ‘window decal’ as a token of participation and thanks.
  • Work your social game; grab a friend or two and begin a weekly ‘training’ ritual.
  •  It’s fun to be part of something bigger than yourself. Share your training pics on our Facebook page and enjoy photos & posts from other runners.
  • The opportunity to purchase a very limited 27th Annual Pit Run shirt. In previous years, overflow shirts would be available for sale; this will not be the case this year.  Shirts will be for sale this fall, in local Oneonta stores (TBA)
  • Throughout its 26-year history, the race has grown into a beloved Upstate New York tradition that brings out its true colors of fall, largely because of the community that has embraced it and welcomes all. This year, the first Sunday in October deserves the same spirit.

The Pit Run needs you now. Did you know:

  • The Pit Run raises funds for a small non-profit organization, The Ricky J. Parisian Memorial Scholarship Foundation [More info found on DONATION page or www.Parisianfoundation.com]
  • 100% of registration fees returns to the region to support our youth.
  • Since its inception, this powerful economic engine has returned $575,245 to the region in scholarships, and children’s programs.
  • At the core of all these activities lies the simple but powerful mission of improving and changing lives through physical activity. This is a mission we love and hope to continue for decades to come.
