Hudson Relays take place Saturday; pep rally on library oval today

The 103rd annual Hudson Relays—the oldest programmed campus tradition—will take place April 27. The event pits each class’s best runners against each other in a 25-mile relay around campus.

In 1910, the Hudson Relays were created to commemorate the campus move from Hudson, Ohio, to Cleveland—originally starting in Hudson and ending at the rock in front of Adelbert Hall. In 1990, the race was changed to its current course around campus.  The winning team has its class year engraved on the Hudson Relays rock outside the south wall of Adelbert Hall.

Prior to the race, there will be a pep rally Friday, April 26, from 12:30 to 2 p.m. on the Kelvin Smith Library oval. The race will be Saturday, April 27, at 10:30 a.m. Breakfast begins at 9 a.m., followed by team photos at 9:30 a.m. and opening ceremonies at 10 a.m.
