Orange Runner's Club

*** 2020 Grand Prix is Furloughed until 2021 ***

Some of the best local races to mold your running schedule.

Plan your racing season - and then race your plan.

The Orange Runners Club Grand Prix is back for the 2020 racing season and like its predecessor the Hudson Valley Grand Prix, is a year-long race program designed to encourage friendly competition and help achieve personal goals while interspersing the excitement and suspense that motivates participants to a higher performance level than running alone would provide.

A variety of distances and difficulty levels challenges runners to change and adapt their running strategy and styles and encourages goal inspiring performances and the exercising of perseverance, patience, and vigilance that is also developed along the way.

Come and join us as we move into a new year of exciting and unique competition that will stimulate the running community.
