Mystic Classic

The 2018 Mystic Classic Road race was a great success.  Thanks to all the Mystics who participated as volunteers and/or runners.
A Message from the Race Director  
By Dave Corbett
To the Amazing Mystic Runners:
I can’t thank you enough for how wonderful race day turned out.  I truly believe that Dave McGillivray put it best when he made the following remark regarding road races, “Chalk mark on the road?  Yell, ‘Go!’?”  To so many road races it is that simple but those of us who have had been a part of one know very differently.  It takes an army to produce an amazing event, and we are clearly doing something right.  In a generation where there are way too many races and so many are struggling to survive, we are thriving.  Well over 300 runners registered this year for the Mystic Runners Classic 5K, 10K, and Kid’s Fun Run (a club record).  I’m thankful for each one of them.  Most importantly, I’m thankful for the volunteers who gave up part of their day to make sure others had a great time and were safe, and my committee who has been planning since April to make this even so special.  The tireless effort that you showed always inspires me and makes this day even more special.  It is hard to believe that another Classic is in the books but I can’t wait for the 14th edition next year.
