Five and ten mile runs starting and ending at LaGrange Town Hall. The five mile course is fast and flat (The Winter Run in reverse) while the ten mile course has one challenging up-hill section plus the fact that you run it twice!

There is a $5 discount/race for MHRRC club members.

We also have four $50 gift cards to Croton Running Company that 4 lucky finishers (2 from each race) will be awarded!
Ed Erichson was one of the founding members of the Mid-Hudson Road Runners Club, which was formed in 1979. The first club-sponsored race was called the Inaugural Run and Erichson was the race organizer. Sadly, Erichson passed away in a car accident in 1984. MHRRC “founding mothers” Linda Stow and Mary Phillips felt it was important to carry on the race tradition. They renamed the race in honor of Erichson, and a scholarship fund in his name was formed for graduating Hyde Park School District runners every year.
