Training Runs
2016 marks the 15th year since local racing star and former Classic 10K Race Director, Wayne Beam, started his weekly training runs back in 2002. On Sunday, April 10th, the Beam Team will once again begin their annual training runs through the streets of Middletown in preparation of the 2016 Classic 10K Road Race presented by Crystal Run Healthcare.

Beam works with runners of all levels of training and fitness from seasoned runners, to those just starting out. "The purpose of the runs are to learn the course, meet other runners, and get in shape. What better way to get in shape?" said Beam.

The Classic Mile

The Classic Mile
Runners at the Starting Gun - Classic Mile 2015

Spring races have become symbolic to the local running communities of the great and healthy sport of road running. One 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.

Thanks to all who came out to support the Classic 10K, the Rowley 5K, and the new Classic 10K Mile events in the Spring of 2016!
