The 10K has rich history in Orange County NY and in 1983 Wally Krecidio scheduled two stamp cancellations promoting the running event. This was written up in the TH-Record for June 1983. See the quoted synopsis following.

MIDDLETOWN - No, Virginia, the post office is never open on Sunday. But it will be for the third annual Orange Classic 10 kilometer-race. The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is providing a mobile post office at the entrance to the Orange County Fairgrounds Sunday. There will be a special, one-time pictorial cancellation for collectors presenting envelopes with the proper postage affixed... The cancellation, a philatelic collectible, will be used only on Sunday by the agency before it is destroyed. Read more.

See additional articles and higher quality images of the cancellations below in the Classic 10K Scrapbook from 1983 and while you are there you may also want to check out additional photos and videos including all the years of the Classic 10K scrapbook.
