The Classic 10K Road Races

Welcome to the Classic 10K website. This year is the 34th running of the dynamic Classic 10K road race and the 9th running of the Rowley 5K. These races have become a symbol for the local running communities of the great and healthy sport of road running. Inspiration and motivation for over a generation and driven by Olympic Champion Frank Shorter whose Middletown roots have left the footprints that 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, finds and then knows they have the ability to go the distance. Interested? Come out and support the 2014 Classic 10K and Rowley 5K events this Spring.
