Individual 30km road race originally designed and organized from 2002-2004 by USATF Certified Coach Brian Cavanagh. Organized by Sullivan Striders from 2005 on. Relay option added in 2005 by Sullivan Striders officers. Special thanks to Myriam Loor for organizing this for several years, especially since this comes only two weeks after another big race she directs, the Celebrate Life Half Marathon.  
Brian founded the 100km Catskill Mountain Road Relay, a five and ten person team relay (with 10k legs) which has been held annually since 1992 and became a solo ultramarathon as well as a relay under Todd Jennings' & Ken Posner's guidance in 2014.  Brian contributed literally thousands of hours to organizing the 30k & 100k and to efforts involving the Orange Runners Club and Sullivan Striders between the years 1989-2015. A former 2:48 marathoner (1:56:20 for the Bankathon/Chopathon 30km, equivalent to about a 2:06 for the WM30K), he saw the need for an accurate 30k in the region to give runners a goal to help them develop long-run fitness for a spring marathon. Extensive preparation was the key to well-planned events. He hopes others will put in the time to promote running via these events.
