As you may know or have guessed, the event committee and the race directors are at work arranging for the upcoming running season and have seen fit to make a changes that affects the event. Thank you for your understanding.
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.

Plan now to be a part of this great local tradition and come out to the Classic 10K weekend with us in 2019, - you will be glad you did.
