Monday, December 24, 8:00 a.m., Downtown Hudson

Escape from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season by donning the ugly sweater your Aunt Marge knitted for you last year and running the 6th annual Frosty 5 Mile or Mistletoe Mile Fun Run presented by Summa Health Wellness Center. This Hudson tradition is your opportunity to have some holiday fun and do some good.  The race is walker and stroller friendly, the sweater contest is hilarious, and the Mistletoe Mile is perfect for the kids! Come on out and don’t be surprised if you see Santa and several reindeer in the race!

Need to finish your Holiday shopping?  Look no further than the Merchants of Hudson. These deals are good from race morning through December 30th.
