Fetching Brews Run/Walk
The Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SQSPCA) and the Clark Sports Center are teaming up with three local breweries to offer a new charity run this year to benefit the shelter.
On Saturday, June 19, the “Fetching Brews Run/Walk” will feature a 10K run beginning and ending at Brewery Ommegang and a 5K run/walk from Brewery Ommegang to the Cooperstown Brewing Company. A .5K kid-friendly warmup event – “Fetching Fun” – is a run/walk from Brewery Ommegang to Red Shed Brewery.
The breweries will greet runners and walkers with a free beverage (beer offered for those over 21 years of age). 10K and 5K participants will receive a brewery glass as they finish and a free T-shirt if registered before June 1; .5K registrants will get an official Fetching Fun Frisbee.
The top three confirmed finishers in each race category will have an animal adoption sponsored in their honor in addition to receiving a selection of age-appropriate beverages.
The Fetching Fun Run/Walk will start at 8:30 a.m. and will feature a Pet Parade with prizes in 10 categories. Registration for the Fun Run/Walk is free if warming up for the main event and for those 12 and under, and $10 for participants 13 and up. The 10K and 5K events begin at 9 a.m. Registration fees are $30 (13 and up) and $10 (12 and under.)
