The Friends of Hudson Parks first annual Fall Hike & Bike Spree launched Sept. 28, and some participants have already earned T-shirts. Hikers and cyclists have until Nov. 30 to complete eight of the 13 designated trails to win a free T-shirt especially designed for the event.
Thirteen-month-old Piper Bell of Hudson was the first official participant to claim her T-shirt, finishing just ahead of her father, Steven Bell. Once individuals have completed at least eight of the trails, they may turn in their forms at the Hudson Parks office at Hudson Springs. Office hours are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. At other times, participants may submit their forms in the drop box at the Parks office, and they will be contacted to receive their T-shirts.
Entry forms with complete rules may be picked up at the Parks office or downloaded from the Friends' website www.friendsofhudsonparks.org. The program allows participants to choose from more than 13 miles of multipurpose trails at the following locations: Barlow Farm Park, Bicentennial Woods, Boston Mills Park, Cascade Park, Colony Park, Darrow Road Park, Hudson Springs Park, Maple Grove Park, Nicholson Trail, Trumbull Woods, Turnpike Trail, Veterans Way Park and Wildlife Woods.
The Hike & Bike Spree is cosponsored by the Hudson Parks, Appalachian Outfitters, Kurtz & Company Keller Williams Chervenic Realty and Prostar Specialties.
