Rock the Ridge 2021
By L.A. McMahon
From Issue 50: Summer 2021
The annual Rock The Ridge event is scheduled for September 25, 2021! It is a 50-mile endurance challenge set in the Mohonk Preserve and its environs, which is comprised of four legs and runs almost entirely on carriage roads. Various fitness levels are accommodated and welcomed. Whether you hike, run, or do some of each, Rock The Ridge will be an accomplishment that you’ll remember with pride. Participants can also register as two-or four-member teams cutting the course into manageable chunks amongst the team members.
Since 2013, participants have collectively raised over $1,800,000 to support Mohonk Preserve’s award-winning conservation science, environmental education, land protection, and stewardship programs. The event could not be a success without a strong corps of volunteers. Whether it is acting on a committee, supporting runners at an aid station, being a course marshal, helping with event setup and breakdown, or any of the many other important roles, spots are open for local and not-so-local residents. An event t-shirt, food and other amenities are provided free to all who volunteer their services.
