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 Western Reserve Racing’s 5th annual Frosty 5 Mile or Mistletoe Mile Fun Run. This Hudson tradition is your opportunity to have some holiday fun and do some good. Dress up and be merry! The race is walker and stroller friendly 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! Great fun for the whole family. Sign up or volunteer at the link. Race kicks off on the Village Green at 8 a.m.

Ugly sweater contest will take place prior to the 5 Mile start.

The 2017 Frosty 5 proudly supports Destination Hudson!
