Join us at Race for the Parks 5k & 10k and celebrate springtime amid the blooming trees and flowers at Hudson's gem, Hudson Springs Park. Make a day of it with your friends or family. Sign up together as a social team and start the morning on a beautiful course, followed by a visit to historic downtown Hudson for brunch and browsing in a shopping district as meticulously maintained as the park.


The course is a unique combination of non-technical groomed trail and adjacent neighborhood roads, offering a variety of terrain perfect for all paces, from walkers to seasoned runners. Think of it as a stroll through the park with a few hills mixed in for variety and to challenge you! Choose one loop for the 5k or two loops for the 10k and enjoy stunning views along the park's 50-acre lake and through the forest. You may even spot a fox or deer in the woods or a heron soaring overhead. Click here to view the Race for the Parks course maps.
