Welcome to the Classic 10K website
Although this running event may not be on your 'radar' yet it is on ours. 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!
For example, 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 in the Classic 10K Scrapbook from 1983. While you are there you may also want to check out the race media page for additional photos and videos including all years of the Classic 10K scrapbook.
Plan now to come out and run the Classic 10K weekend with us in 2017, and stop back to the website for additional information and updates on the changes afoot - you will be glad you did.
