EVENT: 2017 Rock the Ridge 50
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2017
Here's the deal. In 2016 I completed the Rock the Ridge 50-mile challenge, but there was a mixup. Myself and at least one other runner were sent in the wrong direction (accidentally, I trust) at a junction more than half-way through the course. While both of us ended up completing the event, we estimate that in getting back on course we added somewhere in the vicinity of 7 miles to our total race. In my case, this means that my official race time for Rock the Ridge 2016 -- which was 14 hours, 8 minutes, 47 seconds -- is the time it took me to run some uncertain distance close to 57 miles. The time it took for me to reach exactly 50 miles is unknown, but I suspect it to be somewhere just under 12 hours. Regardless, I am confident that I can improve my time, as well as earn an official and accurate 50-mile race time, in Rock the Ridge 2017.
More importantly: The Mohonk Preserve does serious environmental good. A donation would help the Preserve maintain its undeveloped lands, supplement their educational and scientific programs, and show your support for my attempt to overcome this challenge. Any support you would like to offer me or the Mohonk Preserve would be much appreciated.
I need to raise $250 by April 29, 2017 to take part in the event. Click here to find out more about the Mohonk Preserve.
