Duchess County Classic returns to the physical event — what to know

The Duchess County Classic was held last September, as it has been every year for more than four decades.

You may not have noticed. After all, there were no roadblocks or police patrolling the area. There was no request for volunteers to build water tables, and there was no sense of friendship after the race. There were not even bibs.

Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the local road race calendar crown was held last year, just like the other races. Runners are invited to run on their own and spend their time online.

This is one of the reasons why a lot of power goes through the doors of the Fleet this week.
