EVENT: 2017 Rock the Ridge 50
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2017
I am embarking on my next running adventure, Rock the Ridge 50 Mile Endurance Challenge and I am asking for your help. Rock The Ridge is a 50-mile endurance challenge and environmental fundraiser set in the natural beauty of Mohonk Preserve. The goal is to traverse a 50-mile course within 24 hours by walking, running, or any combination thereof. My goal is to make this my second ultramarathon this year, my first being a 50K (31 miles) in January. The course winds along well-maintained carriage roads, through lush forests and over ridgelines with magnificent vistas. The Nature Conservancy has described this area as “one of Earth’s last great places.”
Rock The Ridge supports a great cause: preserving over 8,000 acres of the Shawangunk Mountains region and to support Mohonk Preserve and their award-winning conservation science, environmental education, and land protection and stewardship programs.
