Race for The Parks 5k

8:00AM EDT - 12:00PM EDT
Hudson Springs Park

Note: This event has been approved!  See our web site for our COVID-19 GUIDELINES.

This 5k & 10k event is a combination of roads and a non-technical, groomed trail in Hudson, Ohio. For the trail section, we highlight one of the gems of the Hudson Parks - Hudson Springs Park. The wide crushed gravel path is a favorite of the local runners and walkers as it winds around the lake and through the forest. After the race, head to downtown Hudson and stop in at Heartwood Roastery, Hudson's Restaurant, All Around Cyclery, Vertical Runner, and many more! Start your day with a run and then enjoy dining, shopping, and meandering in Downtown Hudson all while you help us raise money for Hudson Parks!

This event has been rescheduled to October 17, 2020 and is APPROVED FOR IN PERSON RACING. If it cannot be held as scheduled, all registrants will be given a race credit/deferral that can be used towards any WRR event until December 31, 2021.

2020 Race for the Parks 5k/10k benefits Friends of Hudson Parks!
