Woman Runs 26.2 Miles in Hudson in Lieu of New York City Marathon

New York City Marathoner Angie Hatch refused to be denied her opportunity to run 26.2 miles for charity. The Hudsonite mapped out a full marathon course at home and ran anyway.

Angie Hatch of Hudson was set to run the New York City Marathon this weekend for charity, but when Hurricane Sandy made it impossible, she and her supporters came up with a backup plan.

Hatch mapped out a 26.2-mile running course in Hudson beginning at her home on Marin Avenue. More than 100 people showed up to cheer her on at the start of her run, including personnel from St. Croix EMS, Hudson Fire Department and St. Joseph Fire Department. Two TV news crews from the Twin Cities also were on hand.

Hatch's run, which will benefit the Joint Council, a charity that helps orphans find loving homes, began just after 10 a.m. She is expected to finish this afternoon at Lakefront Park.
