Run On Hudson Valley


Dear friends,

If you’ve found this page, it means you are probably looking for information about Run On Hudson Valley. 

Sadly, after five years in business, we closed our doors in April 2019. It was a fantastic run and I thank all of our customers for shopping with us and supporting the store. I met countless great people, heard inspiring stores, and gained many new friends. We were incredibly lucky to find ourselves in an awesome running community that supported local businesses.

There are many reasons why I decided to close the store. The biggest was the time and energy it took to operate the business. A small business is insanely hard. A specialty brick and mortar retail store is even harder!

But another reason was because of the website you find yourself on right now.

I initially built this site in 2014 more or less as a hobby. But in 2017, I began investing more time and resources into it. Now it’s doing quite well – much better than the store ever did. It’s currently my full-time business. Unlike ROHV, it requires much less time to operate. I can work on it from pretty much anywhere and on my own schedule.

We’ve got a lot of great running information here, so feel free to browse around.

Some highlights include:
