    results will be posted at http://www.tothefinishtiming.com/results.html, on the event web page
    and on our Facebook page.

    Street to W. Jennings Street through Historic Downtown Newburgh. All participants will enter
    the Rivertown Trail at the Aurand Trailhead near Yorkshire Drive. The 10K will go down the new
