THE STORY:

Anne Swaha wrote -

Now in its 5th year, Rock  The Ridge continues its tradition of achievement, community, and a dedication to preserving the natural environment for future generations to enjoy. Conceived in the spirit of President John F. Kennedy's call to Americans to get fit, Rock The Ridge renews this challenge from the early 1960s and places it right in the heart of the magnificent Shawangunk Ridge, land which The Nature Conservancy has described as “one of Earth's last great places.

 

Set in the 8,000-acre Mohonk Preserve, the course winds along beautiful carriage trails, through the forests and across the magnificent ridgelines of the Preserve lands. Whether you choose to walk, run, or do a combination of both, Rock the Ridge is a spectacular outdoor adventure, and an accomplishment that you’ll be proud of for a long time!

 

Starting with 188 participants in 2013, the event grew to 424 registered runners and hikers in 2016. Many of our Ridge Rockers continue to be first-timers, but the number of returnees has grown each year, with nine people having completed the full 50 miles in all four years, and 23 others having completed the race three times. 

Since the inception of Rock The Ridge, our registrants have collectively raised nearly $700,000 for Mohonk Preserve and other charities, a statistic of which we are most proud. We wish to thank everyone who has enjoyed the event thus far and contributed to its ongoing success.  

On behalf of the entire Rock The Ridge team, I'd like to welcome you to our special community, and I ask you to join us on May 06, 2017 for what will surely be 50 of the most spectacular miles you will ever experience on foot.

 

Sincerely,
Todd Jennings
Director, Rock The Ridge
