This will give you something to look forward to. Maybe you can start "quaranTraining"?  Okay, that's pushing it. But it's not a bad idea.

I know we're all hoping summer gets here quick and wishing the COVID-19 outbreak is under control. While we wait, here's something to put on your calendar for October 2020.

Gourdy's Pumpkin Run: Hudson Valley.

This year's pumpkin run/walk 5K will once again be held at Kelders Farm in Kerhonkson on Saturday, October 17th. The run will kick off at 9 am.

Runners will receive a lightweight tech hoodie, finishers medal, professional race photos, free apple cider at the end of the race and a free small pumpkin to take home. Plus, parking is free.

If a 3.1 mile run seems too easy you can sign yourself up for the Tough Pumpkin. They'll give you a pumpkin to carry while you run.

Challenge accepted?

Runners and walkers can sign up for $39 at
