Our thanks to all who came out to Run With The Deer Flies on Sunday, July 31, 2022. After weeks of very hot weather in the area, things cooled off just in time for race day. Perfect weather for a run on the single-track trails, pipeline roads, swamps, and hills around Yellow Creek. The creek (crick) crossing was a bit of a letdown because of low water levels - more of a puddle crossing this year.
New this year were Deer Fly finishers' medals courtesy of Bethany Serafin Awalt of Valley Village Oral Surgery Associates, Pikesville, Maryland. Traditional Deer Fly Swatters were also be available, provided by Chris Sharbaugh, Indiana Chiropractic Clinic, Indiana, Pennsylvania.
During the race, eight lucky names were drawn to win $25 gift cards to Luigi's Ristorante in Clymer, four runners from the 15K and four from the 25K. A nice surprise at the Finish Line. The gift cards were compliments of Luigi's and Bernadette Drew of Bernadette Drew Interiors, Bel Air, Maryland.
Ultra runner Ryan Knecht was back with us again this year to grill burgers and hot dogs as a post-race treat. Ryan was on hand to promote his upcoming Howl the Moon 30K Trail Run at Linn Run State Park on October 30, 2022.
Steve Pagano of Pagano Chiropractic Clinic, Carrolltown, PA was the sponsor of one of the aid stations this year.
Assisting at registration, on the course and the finish line were the grandchildren of Bill and Giny Serafin - Kyle Drew, Serafina Drew, and Sophia Awalt. Our thanks to Giny Serafin for all her support before and during the race. Giny was at the finish line throughout the day to greet finishers.
We would also like to acknowledge a generous donation from Joe Newton of West Chester, Ohio.
Race shirts provided through the courtesy of Allied Milk Producers.
Plans are already being made for the 2023 Run With The Deer Flies. The date will be Sunday, July 30, 2023. Mark your calendars now and plan to join us! Registration will open after the first of the year.
