Last updated 9/26/2023 at 10:37am
Cool fall weather greeted just over 200 runners and walkers at the second annual GiddyUp Run organized by Kelly Bither of RunSistersRun, held Saturday, September 23 at Pole Creek Ranch.
Action got underway with a short Buckaroo Run for about 50 kids 10 and under and then moved on to the 5- mile race and the 5-kilometer run/walk, which totaled 175 participants according to Bither.
Members of the Sisters High School Alpine ski team served as course monitors, for which Bither made a donation to the team's upcoming season.
In addition to her appreciation to the Cole family at Pole Creek Ranch, Bither got great support from sponsors Three Creeks Brewery, Lucky Woodsman, Wild Roots Spirits, Sasquatch Water, and Wyld Sparkling Water.
Anderson Turner of Bend won the five-mile race in 29:43. Complete race results were not published before race time, but will be available at http://www.eclecticedgeracing.com. Next up on the RunSistersRun calendar is the third annual Ugly Sweater Run set for Saturday, December 2. Registration information can be found at http://www.runsistersrun.com.
