May 8, 2010 - Whipple Dam State Park and Rothrock State Forest

Rain passed through the area in the early daylight and by 8 a.m. the skies began to clear over Rothrock State Forest for the 7th Beidleheimer Sidewinder 10K. Fifty-five runners took on the fast, rolling course that drops 400+ feet in elevation from start to finish. This year the Fullington school buses ferrying runners to the start line were blue and white, mimicking the skies overhead.

Thanks to a few of the area's fastest women being elsewhere, the men dominated today's contest, taking the first seven spots despite the gender adjustment factor. Patrick Singletary, 44, and Alicia Cornali, 38, took first honors for the men and women, with and without the adjustment. Terry Reid, Costas Maranas, and Joshua Ciccolini took the second through fourth hardware. Today's show-stealer was Jay Ciccolini, 11, who earned fifth place honors and became the youngest person to complete this race. Though not a PR for Jay, it was definitely a positive step in his blossoming running career. Laura Shaffer and Angel Burd took second and third among the women.

Team traffic saw the local Trophy Ho's negotiate victory, with Live Well Fitness, from the Williamsport area, taking second place honors.

The post-race spread highlight of hearty party subs, courtesy of Tussey Teaser series sponsor Subway Restaurants, was clearly a hit. Oodles of prizes went out to participants, including bunches of Happy Valley Rita's coupons, a gift card and a mushrooms field guide from Webster's Bookstore Café, two gift cards from Hoss's, socks from Appalachian Outdoors,  and two boxes of Dunkin Donuts generously donated by Bob Rice.

Thanks to Bob for single-handedly staffing the water station, to Mark Fedkin for assistance with registration and recording finishers, to Ann Van Kuren for picking up the party subs, and to Marty Mazur for providing timing and results. Many thanks to Subway and Tom Cali-RE/MAX Centre Realty for their support of this unique race.

Be sure to mark June 6 on your calendars: The next Tussey Teaser is the fabled "Treaster Kettle Test-Your-Mettle," a 10.6-mile out-and-back jaunt on Leg 10 of the mOUnTaiNBACK course. This run is free, with optional TKTYM shirts to prove your fortitude. For details on the remaining Teasers, visit http://www.tusseymountainback.com/tussey_teasers.html.
