Pit Run

Celebrating their 23rd Year as a Premier Racing Event

Run the most challenging 10k course in the area! Are you ready to tackle the one-mile uphill climb through the City of The Hills? You'll be racing against hundreds of runners from across New York State.  Prefer a shorter distance? Try the popular 5k run, 2-mile stroll, or kids' fun run. After the race, stay for a barbecue picnic, kids activities, games, and live music as the community celebrates the life of fallen State Trooper Ricky "Pit" Parisian.

All proceeds from the races go to the Ricky J. Parisian Scholarship Foundation, dedicated to improving education for local school children.

The Pit Run is proud to announce that we are the first race in the brand new O-town triple crown! The The O-Town Triple Crown strives to promote a series of quality run/walk events that create a better sense of community, promote healthy activities, and raise support for and awareness of three charitable organizations: The Ricky J. Parisian Memorial Scholarship Foundation, Catskill Area Hospice and Palliative Care, and the Oneonta Family YMCA. Each event includes a different course throughout the beautiful hills of Oneonta. The O-Town Triple Crown series kicks off in the Fall and runs through the Holiday season by recognizing and celebrating those who come out to our great community and get moving in the spirit of giving to these three great causes.

All runners and walkers who participate in all three events will receive a free quarter zip athletic shirt courtesy of our sponsors Five Star Subaru and The Future for Oneonta Foundation.
