This Sunday, October 21, is the 18th annual Ghostly Gallop, the 5K run/walk through the streets of Hudson to benefit the Hudson Area Library. There are a few things that are new this year in this time-honored event. First is the starting time: the Kids Fun Run is at 10 a.m.; the 5K Walk/Run starts at 10:30 a.m.
Next is the route. As in recent years, the course begins and ends at Hudson Junior/Senior High School on Harry Howard Avenue, but the route in between is different. This year, the route follows Harry Howard to Carroll Street and on to State Street, up State past the library to Seventh, then winds through Washington and Clinton streets to Glenwood and Parkwood boulevards, to Paddock Place, Joslen Place, Riverledge Road, and back to Harry Howard.
Also new this year are cash prizes for the top three female and male finishers: $100, $75, and $50 respectively.
Online registration now is closed, but you can register on Sunday morning, starting at 8 a.m. until 9:30 a.m., at the event. If you have already registered online, you can pick up your race packet at the library, 51 North Fifth Street, between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 20.
