Hudson – For the sixth straight year, the Highland City Striders (HCS) held their Laborious Labor Day Ten Miler road race to benefit the Hudson Food Pantry. The unique race was the “brain child” of Mark Vital (founder of the HCS), who wanted to help local food pantries. Unlike most road races that ask participants for an entry fee, Vital asked for canned goods, one for each mile to run. The HCS also holds a 10-miler at Thanksgiving for the Marlborough Food Pantry.

“Over the last seven years, I believe we have raised over 10,000 cans for the area’s most needy,” Vital said.

This year’s race also had some strong competitors. Kevin Jillson from Worcester established a new course record with a time of 53:59. Lisa Danielson from Shrewsbury was the first female (eighth overall) with a time of 1:10.21. The first local competitor, fourth overall, was Michael Clements from Marlborough. Elizabeth Masterohn from Hudson was the first local female in 22nd place.
