The Burning of Kingston Capital to Capital Run
Sunday October 18, 2020
From Kingston to Hurley New York
The Burning of Kingston Capital to Capital Run is a commemorative 5k run between Kingston and the Village of Hurley, tracing the trail of colonial refugees fleeing the British soldiers who burned the city down during the American Revolutionary War in 1777. At the time the New York State Capital was moved from Kingston to Hurley. Starting at the Senate House (the first NYS capital) in Uptown Kingston and finishing at the Van Deusen House on Main Street in Hurley (where the capital was moved), the run is both a "fun run" as well as timed for running enthusiasts. Runners will be greeted in Hurley with the annual Hurley Heritage Day.
More details to come.
