Race for the Parks 5k & 10k

Race for the Parks 5k & 10k

Sat, May 13, 2023
Hudson Springs Park
5k & 10k Groomed Trail


Start your day with a 5k or 10k run or hike and then enjoy dining, shopping, and meandering in Downtown Hudson, all while you help raise money for Hudson Parks!


This 5k & 10k event is a combination of roads and a non-technical, groomed trail. For the trail section, we highlight one of the gems of the Hudson park system – Hudson Springs Park. The wide crushed gravel path is a favorite of local runners and walkers as it winds around the lake and through the forest.
