Join Dutchess County Classic
Described by past participants as a low-key race without lots of spectators, the race featured a new course, moving from its previous location in Wappingers Falls to nearby LaGrangeville.
With its mostly flat terrain with a few hills along the course, the race reveals the changes that the area (which lies about 75 miles north of New York City) has experienced over the past several years, as what was once rural countryside has increasingly given way to suburban neighborhood development. There are still plenty of pastoral views along the course, though, as the race crosses creeks and runs past Sprout Creek Farm on Lauer Road.
Set for its annual running this year, the Dutchess County Classic Half Marathon follows a point-to-point route that starts at Arlington High School just outside LaGrangeville, and follows a mostly gently rolling course down to Hillside Lake Road and Dogwood Knolls Country Club before turning north to head back up Hillside Lake Road and Arthursburg Road.
The course then continues past Stringham Park to the finish line at LaGrange Middle School.
