Runners Race for Cookies in Berwick

MARGARET LIVSEY AND BILL BULL

BERWICK, PA--While most Cookie Runs are set in cold, blustery, possibly snowy conditions, the 2017 edition was quite the opposite! The sunny, hot 75-degree day of Friday fortunately gave way to a cloudy, breezy 60-degree race day, February 25. This was still plenty warm for runners used to practicing in winter weather; let alone racing in the warmth. The water station at the top of the hill was a welcome oasis for tired and thirsty runners. Thanks to the Berwick SOAR and the Whites for volunteering!

Despite the warm weather, the race failed to reach 300 finishers for only the second time in the last seven years. Although not as many as recent years, a nice sized field of 285 entered, and 253 finished.
