The Classic Championship
Presented by M&T Printing Group


Presented by M&T Printing Group

Run the District because you are a champion!

The Classic Championship has become the super bowl of the series where runners finish the series feeling like a champion.

The race kicks off with the pop of a confetti cannon as champions stride out of the West Annex. Once out of the building the battle truly begins as runners keep pace with their competitors, challenge their best times and ultimately focus on crossing that finish line! Speaking of the finish line, after a fantastic 5K, 10K or Fun Run participants will be greeted with cheering crowds, huge high fives and a shield of a medal to celebrate their accomplishment. 

After the race join us for a pasta lunch and awards banquet as we crown the Run The District Series Champions!
