Get Into Nature
Saturday, 9am-1pm. Thinking about participating in Rock The Ridge on May 2nd? Wondering if you’re up for the challenge?
Join the race organizers as they guide you through the first leg of the course from the Testimonial Gateway to Spring Farm. The group will be split into runners (led by Ken Posner) and hikers (led by Joe Alfano). Each group will receive tips and training ideas on how to successfully complete the challenge. Excellent for endurance and relay participants. The groups will depart at 9am sharp from the Testimonial Gateway on Gatehouse Road, just off Route 299 in New Paltz. For hikers, the event will last from 2 to 4 hours. For runners, there will be options including 8, 15, and 25 miles on dirt roads/carriage trails at an easy pace. Maps will be provided. This is a free program but registrations are required. Call 845-255-0919 for reservations. Like Rock The Ridge, this event will be held rain or shine.
