Race Info

Join us for the 42nd Annual Mid-Hudson Road Runners Club Virtual Dutchess County Classic. This event will take place from 9/13/20-9/20/20.

We are taking this opportunity to support a great cause, and come together as a community.  For 2020 the Mid-Hudson Road Runners Club will donate 100% of all race profits from the Dutchess County Classic to the Dutchess Responds Charity that has been set up to help those in need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
