Sixth ANNUAL CIDER RUN - SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 2018 - Fly Creek Cider Mill - 10:00am

Runners, walkers, volunteers and spectators will gather to raise funds and awareness for the Susquehanna Animal Shelter (SAS). The SAS cares for homeless and abandoned animals in and around Otsego County, NY. 

NEW this year, the Cider Run includes a FREE kids fun run and a virtual run for those who want to run for the SAS, but can't make it to Fly Creek.

We will also have our traditional scenic 5k run and walking course as well as a challenging 10k course. Participation in either the 5K or 10K event will guarantee you a refreshing and delicious glass of hard (with valid I.D.) or sweet cider at the finish. Each course provides spectacular views of the mountains and valleys that surround the Fly Creek Cider Mill.  The 10k presents an increased challenge and any runner will feel a sense of accomplishment when completing this course.
