The Oldest Tradition on Campus
Beginning in 1910, the Hudson Relays was created to commemorate the campus move from Hudson, Ohio to Cleveland. The Hudson Relays is a race amongst the classes that put each class' best runners to the test in a 25-mile relay around campus. Each alumni participant will run one or more sections of the 25-mile course.
This year, we're upping the ante with a side competition between the alumni and graduate student teams!
To be divulged at a later date - stay tuned!
