A 5K RUN AND KIDS FUN RUN FOR THE HUDSON AREA LIBRARY
The Ghostly Gallop is a signature fall event in Hudson because of its beautiful and certified course through the city and lots of family fun at the start/finish line.
This year’s Gallop will be the 23rd year that runners, walkers, and volunteers gather to support the Hudson Area Library through the 5K road race and Kids One-Mile Fun Run.
It’s all for a great cause. The Ghostly Gallop is an important fundraiser for the library, which depends on your generosity to keep our programs for adults and children going strong.
- The Fun Run is free for children age 12 and under! Start time is 10 a.m.
- Each Fun Run participant receives a race bib with their name on it, a medal and a free book donated by the Hudson Children’s Book Festival.
- The 5K is free to students age 17 and under. Start time is 10:30 a.m.
- Costume contest with great prizes…plus a free photo booth!
- The fastest men’s and women’s 5K finishers each receive a Cranna Cup.
The cup is named after William Cranna, a former library trustee and
judge who helped start the race 23 years ago.
- Medals are presented to the top three age category finishers.
