Kiwanis Kingston Classic Tip 8 from The Daily Freeman

There is something to be said for a dress rehearsal.

Before the main event, there’s nothing better than getting in a practice on the venue where that event takes place.

Runners preparing for the challenge of the Kiwanis Kingston Classic 10k in two weeks should consider having their own dress rehearsal before the race.

By going onto the race’s web site., there is a link named the “runners” that when you hover over it will reveal a menu bar to select “course maps”.

There you can look at the entire route and map out your own strategy for race day.

The best strategy would be to print out that map and have a practice run over the course.

This will allow you to familiarize yourself with the details and twists and turns of course, making you better able to visualize how to attack the course in getting to the finish line.

Since the course travels through the business district in uptown Kingston, I would suggest either an early morning or late afternoon run to avoid the bulk of the traffic. Running on a Saturday or Sunday might also be advised.

Whatever you decide, that dress rehearsal will help to lessen some of the stress of race day.
