Some of the best local races to plan your running schedule around. Plan your racing season, and race your plan.


The rumblings and mentions of how runners missed the competition and camaraderie after the Hudson Valley Grand Prix closed down after more than a decade of operation was inspirational. Former statistician and participant in the event Marco Pabon said about the HV Grand Prix that it helped to prepare the athlete to be ready for the next event when they had a schedule to follow.

The 2017 Grand Prix is a race program designed to encourage friendly competition and achieve personal goals while interspersing excitement and suspense. Come join us as we move into a new year of healthy competition that will stimulate the running community and all the scorekeepers among us. Good running to you!

2017 Grand Prix Race Schedule Update
Due to the Shamrock Scramble 5k changing its race date from March 19th to March 26th, the Grand Prix Board has added an alternative race. The alternative race is Ruthie Dino Marshall 5k, June 11, 2017. Note: the score will be from either race but not both. You can certainly run both races, but if you do, the score from the Shamrock Scramble 5k will be the one that applies to the overall 2017 Grand Prix. Also, you still have plenty of time to sign up for the 2017 Grand Prix as the Board has extended the sign up period up to Ellenville Run like the Wind 10k, May 21, 2017. Your scores from the 2017 Grand Prix races you participate in up to that time will count toward your overall score.
