"We are bringing back the masters divisions for both men and women as one way to honor people who have been part of the race all these years. To hold a race like this for 30 years is quite a milestone. Very few running events of this stature have lasted this long. It's a tribute to the runners and, in recent years, the walkers who have participated in the 20K Classic. Certainly, the biggest debt of gratitude goes to the race sponsors from the very beginning in 1977 to the present."
--- 2006 Race Director, Howard V. Corcoran
