PORT JERVIS, NY — It was a glorious fall morning and hundreds of runners gathered at the starting lines for the 5K and 10K races held in the Tri-State Chamber’s 18th annual Tri-State Classic Race held on Sunday, October 13. The excitement continued to build around the registration area and on Jersey Avenue in Port Jervis beginning around 7 a.m. and continued until the race awards ceremony and lunch from Outback Steakhouse in Riverside Park afterwards, which concluded at 11:30 a.m. The races had live music along the routes, water stops, historic landmarks, early morning crowds cheering and friends cheering them on to the finish line.
A portion of the race proceeds will be donated to the local chapter of the American Cancer Society in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month in October.
