Check in starts at 9am on Fair Street in front of the Senate House in Uptown Kingston. Start time is 10am, and finishes on Schoolhouse Lane just off 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 Capital to Capital 5K commemorates the human story of the Burning of Kingston, when, in October 1777, over 2,000 Kingstonians, mostly women, children and elderly, 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. For more information on the history of the Burning of Kingston visit: http://burningofkingston.com. A UCAT bus will be available, located at the Ernest C Myer Elementary School parking lot, to return participants to Uptown Kingston between 11am-12noon. The event is open to all with registration online at: https://kingstonnyrotary.org/page/captocap NOTE, 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. For more information, visit capitaltocapitalrun.com  or contact Richard Cattabiani at cattabianir@gmail.com.
