run appears to work correctly when you use it at a cygwin shell prompt.
run.exe is a cygwin executable; use ldd see the DLLs that it uses.
Since your shortcut is not starting a windows GUI program, it starts a
console window, possibly executing cmd.exe
It is this console windows where cmd.exe executes run.exe that you see
flashing on the screen.
Have you tried changing the shortcut to cause it to open the window
minimized? I vaguely remember doing something like that with the
cygwin.bat clone I used to start a (non-X windows) rxvt window.
