Orange Classic 10K - by , 06/04/2017
5/ 5stars
If I could give this event 6 stars it certainly deserves it. This was my 1st time running the Classic 10K. I had run the Rowley 5K part of this event twice. There is absolutely nothing I can say bad about it. Well organized, reasonably priced, great expo, plenty of swag, nice tech shirts and a full blown post race breakfast. Frank Shorter the greatest USA marathon runner and Bob Beamon previous world's record long jump were there and very engaging. We ran with Josh's Team, a group dedicated to raising money in memory of Joshua Stamn who died at an early age due to Ataxia-Telangiectasia (AT) a lethal disease that attacks children, causing progressive loss of muscle control, immune system problems. Funds raised from this event goes towards scholarships in Josh's name and the AT Childrens project. Matt Stamn, Josh's brother a warm and inspirational team leader organizes this team year in and year out. I felt like we were one big family running in Josh's menory. Thinking about Josh's zest for life and his battle for life got me over a few hills this morning. The first 4 miles of the course are challenging with hills but the last 2 miles are downhill and flat. A track finish is a special way to end a race. A well marked and safe course travels through Middletown as well as brief run through a park. Plenty of fans cheering you on along the way. The high school band played the theme for Rocky at the start and the finish of the race. There were digital mile markers and water stops every mile. Finishing medals and an awesome breakfast capped off a great race. Ample parking, bathroom and porta johns. Two nice tech shirts one for Josh's Team and the other for the Classic 10K. I would highly recommend this race to everyone next year. I can't wait to return. Kudos to the Race Director and his staff and the community of Middletown for putting on a premium event. Thank you, Stan Race Director Waldwick 5K Run & Runner

1st time competing in this race. From the easy to find parking lot right in front of the starting line and race expo area to the well organized volunteers, everything made this race fun and worthwhile. The course was well marked with water at every mile and road condition was very good shape. Ran around many different parts of Middletown young and old, gave the run an 'authentic' feel. Finishing on the high school track watching yourself on the jumbotron was an added bonus. Meeting Frank Shorter after the race was awesome - friendly and encouraging, and great advice from such a legend was a pleasure. The best post race buffet too was nice - eggs, bacon, fruit, sausage, coffee, and more bacon. WELL worth the entry fee. I'll be back next year!
