EVENT: 2017 Rock the Ridge 50
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2017
I first ran Rock the Ridge in 2014. It's a difficult, scary, humbling race, but it's also incredibly rewarding. I am so grateful to be able to run 50 miles through one of the most beautiful places on earth, and I am glad that the run supports continued public access and education at the Mohonk Preserve.
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.
