2nd Annual Rotary Capital to Capital 5K Run/Walk on October 17th to Benefit Hudson Valley Center for Veteran Reintegration.
For the second year, the Rotary Club of Kingston, NY is sponsoring the Capital to Capital 5K run/walk on Sunday October 17th. Check in starts at 9am on Fair Street in front of the Senate House in Uptown Kingston, start time is 10am, and finishes on Main Street in the village of Hurley. The race is timed, but also at 3.1 miles, its great for groups, teams and families. The event helps to raise funds for the Hudson Valley Center for Veteran Reintegration.
The Capital to Capital 5K commemorates the human story of the Burning of Kingston, when, in October 1777, over 2,000 Kingstonians fled to the Town of Hurley seeking refuge as British soldiers burned their city to the ground. This included moving the new State capital from Kingston to the Van Duesen House in Hurley. Participants in the event will follow the same path as fleeing colonists did 244 years ago.
The event is open to all with registration online at: https://kingstonnyrotary.org/page/captocap
There is no registration on race day. A virtual option is available for participants to walk or run a 5 km (3.1 mi) distance on a trail or park in their hometown or elsewhere, anytime between Monday, October 4 and Sunday, October 17 2021.
