"In only its second year, the Walkway Marathon event has stamped itself firmly in the consciousness of the local running community. Among most runners I know, it’s pretty much a given that the Walkway race is the goal and focus in their training — as well as so many others — and it has been for a few months.
It kind of reminds me of the stature the Dutchess County Classic holds in our local running psyche. Similarly, throughout the summer and early autumn, the presumption among local runners is that they are training for one of the Classic races. Here’s the difference: It took the Classic many years to reach that lofty status in the minds of runners. The Walkway race has done it in the blink of an eye."
