FROSTY 5 & MISTLETOE MILE FUN RUN: Escape from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season by donning the ugly sweater your Aunt Marge knitted for you and running the 7th 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 (Frosty 5 benefits Destination Hudson!) The race is walker- and stroller-friendly, the sweater contest is hilarious, and the Mistletoe Mile is perfect for the kids! Afterward, enjoy post-race refreshments provided by First & Main and coffee from Heartwood Roasters. Come on out and don’t be surprised if you see Santa and several reindeer in the race!
MERCHANTS OF HUDSON SPECIALS: Need to finish your Holiday shopping? Look no further than the Merchants of Hudson. Show your race bib for special Frosty 5 deals redeemable from race morning through December 29th.
