The Classic Mile

The Classic Mile
Runners at the Starting Gun - Classic Mile 2015

Spring races have become symbolic to the local running communities of the great and healthy sport of road running. One special race in this regard is the annual Classic 10K. Some of the inspiration and motivation for this event for over a generation include running greats such as Olympic Champion Frank Shorter and record holder Bill Rodgers. And not to forget the local and regional track stars whose Middletown roots have left the footprints many have endeavored to follow.

The event draws athletes from all levels, from the elite who pick up the pace - to the novice who perhaps competing in this distance for the first time, trains well and finds they have the ability to go the distance.

Thanks to all who came out to support the Classic 10K, the Rowley 5K, and the new Classic 10K Mile events in the Spring of 2016!

Thank you to all of the families, sponsors, and volunteers and everyone else that helped to make the 35th Annual Classic 10K in Middletown NY a day to remember.
