Hudson Valley Running was created as a reference tool for runners of New York’s Hudson River Valley who want to run with others but lack the information and motivation to get registered for local events. If there is one thing that all New Yorker’s know is that life is often fast paced and there never seems to be enough time in the day. The purpose of this site is the following:
We try to list as many local races as possible so you can find what your looking for. Need a family friendly 5k or a tuneup for your spring marathon? We organize races by date, distance and location so you can pick and choose the right race for you - no more excuses!
The most intimidating thing for beginners is not knowing the right program for their fitness level. Or better yet, how to properly train for a specific event. Different events require different programs and we can help point you in the direction of easy to follow training programs perfect for you!
We read a lot of running books and magazines and try out many techniques from them. Some are useful… some are not. We provide our feedback and/or sum up what an article was about, giving you the information you need without watering it down with too much text.
