The Ghostly Gallop 5k, started in 2001, is a fund-raiser to benefit the Hudson Area Library. Runners compete for the William F. Cranna Memorial Cup, named for the late former Library Board member who co-founded the race along with then-Library Director Frank Rees and fellow board member the Hon. Richard Koweek, a Columbia County Court judge. For more information or to register, please visit
