Physical therapist is Upstate’s fastest runner in Syracuse WorkForce Run

Physical therapist Bethany Hudson was Upstate Medical University's fastest runner in the Syracuse Workforce Run, held June 6 on Onondaga Lake Parkway.

Hudson ran the 5K race in 19:05 to place 26 out of the entire field of more than 2,200 runners. She ran 10 seconds faster than she did last year. 

She placed first among Upstate’s 45 runners.

I participate in the WorkForce run, because I grew up down the street in Liverpool and remember cheering on runners as a kid, including my Dad who ran this race when it was the Corporate Challenge,” said Hudson, a physical therapist at Upstate since 2019.

When not attending to patients at Upstate’s Regional Rehabilitation Center at Manlius, Hudson is very likely on the run. She charts five to seven miles a day depending on her training schedule.

Women running for Upstate were well represented in the race. In fact, the first four Upstate runners to cross the finish line were all women. Finishing behind Hudson were Victoria Bove, Christine Courtney and Kristina Meyers.
