The Classic 10K Road Race Web Site


Thank You - doesn't seem like it's enough, but we wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for your participation and interest in the Classic event.

Over a thousand people participated, and there were just as many smiles. Not only that, the dinner with Frank Shorter (see images here) was a great event as well.

From all the runners, to all the spectators, we couldn't have asked for a better weekend. Even the weather cooperated. Minus the quick shower during the Junior Classic :)

These are the types of races that organizers always hope for, and we couldn't be more happy with how everything turned out.

So thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you again at next years event.

The Classic Team
P.S - Even though we are extremely happy about how things went this past weekend, we are always looking for ways to improve. So we appreciate any constructive feedback that you have that will help us make next years event even better.

P.P.S - We also want to send out a very big THANK YOU to our sponsors. Without your support the Classic Weekend would not be possible.

The Classic 10K committee and the event race directors are hard at work arranging for the upcoming running season and the Classic 10 and 5K races in 2017 and are determined to make them events you will remember. In fact and in general, these Spring races have become symbolic to the local running communities in connection with the great and healthy sport of road running. A 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.

Plan now to be a part of this great local tradition and come out to the Classic 10K weekend with us in 2017, - you will be glad you did.

The Classic 10K Community Recognition Celebration is an event where we recognize those who have given so much to running and the community in general and donate and raise awareness of local needs...read more
