Midcurrent Church in Hudson has graciously opened their facility to host CNOY 2024. We will utilize their space for pre-event registration and check-in as well as a soup dinner after the walk.

Local Details

Parking

There is ample parking near Midcurrent Church and Lakefront Park, including roadside parking on First St, the boat ramp lot and the parking lot right off Second St (in front of Lucky Guys and Riverfront Athletic Club). Your GPS might route you to a non-existent entrance for Midcurrent Church off Second St. The only entrance is off First St, next to the river and boat ramp lot.


Rest Stops

We will have rest stops at the turnaround point for both the 1 mile and 3 mile route. Take a minute to grab a bite, refuel and take a break! There is a portable restroom at the 1 mile rest stop and another along the route of the 3 mile route.


Post-Event Meal

We will be serving a light soup meal after the walk at Midcurrent Church.
