“With slightly less than six months to the 2017 Kingston Classic, organizers announced major changes this week for the 35th edition of the popular local race.
First off, Kiwanis Club of Kingston, which revived the Classic in 2013, parted ways with HITS Running and will be the sole organizing body of the race.
Secondly, Kiwanis also recently announced that the marathon and half-marathon races will be discontinued, with only the Classic’s original distance of 10 kilometers and an accompanying 2-mile run offered this year.
And lastly, organizers are in the final stages of charting a new course which will carry runners through the Rondout district of Kingston and into the town of Esopus.”
