May 6, 2017 - 6 a.m.  ROCK THE RIDGE

A 50-mile endurance challenge and environmental fundraiser set in the natural beauty of Mohonk Preserve, a vast, nonprofit nature preserve situated in the mid-Hudson Valley of New York State. The goal is to traverse a 50-mile course within 24 hours by walking, running, or any combination thereof. 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.”

Covering 50 miles in one stretch is a major achievement. But you don’t have to be a marathon runner. The 24-hour time limit accommodates people with a wide range of abilities, including walkers and hikers, as well as joggers, runners, and ultramarathoners. We’ve hosted elite athletes as well as first-time 50-milers and relay teams that walked the entire distance. Whether you walk, run, or do a mixture of both, Rock The Ridge will be an accomplishment that you’ll be proud of for a long time!

Sunday, June 11, 2017 - 6:30 a.m. WALKWAY MARATHON
The Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park—a 19th century railroad bridge transformed into the world’s longest linear park—hosts a weekend full of running memories in New York State’s beautiful Mid-Hudson Valley. Runners of all abilities are invited to take part in one of three flat, fast and scenic races—a marathon, half-marathon, and the Mid-Hudson Road Runners 5K. USATF-certified, the half and full courses follow two paved, nationally recognized rail trails—Hudson Valley Rail Trail in Highland and the William R. Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail in Poughkeepsie. Participants get a true "runners high" as they cross and re-cross the Walkway, admiring picturesque views of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains from 212 feet above the ground. Lots of PBs and BQs expected. Organizers of the "green" race have taken the Pledge of Sustainability outlined by Athletes for a Fit Planet again for 2017 --the Walkway Marathon is the first marathon in NYS to abide by this eco-friendly race blueprint.  845-454-9649    WalkwayMarathon.org
