Location: Wellsville, NY US 14895 Directions
Type: Run Only, Walk Only
Event: 25K Trail Run
Check-in: 7:45 -8:10AM
Bus Leaves: 8:15 AM
Welcome to the RidgeWalk’s most challenging trail! Push yourself or casually walk this terminator trail. It features steep, rocky, and sometimes wet sections, as well as significant climbs and descents of 800 feet or more. The reward is the awesome beauty on a clear day while negotiating wild, remote and challenging footpaths that wind you slowly northeast to the finish line. Extra hydration is a must, so carry a bottle of water; but don’t worry; 6 aid stations will be along the way! The awesome beauty on a clear day while negotiating wild, remote and challenging footpaths that wind you slowly northeast to the finish line is sure to inspire.

A cutoff time of 1:00 PM WILL BE ENFORCED at Fords Brook South Branch Station at approximately 4.5 mi. to go. Anyone coming through after 1:00 PM will be asked to be shuttled to the finish line for their safety. To make the cut off you must cover at least 2.5 miles per hour. With still some tough terrain in the last 4.5 miles it would mean the participant could not make the finish line before 3:00 PM at the earliest and we will be running out of busses and food by that time.

Anyone coming through after 1:00 PM will be asked to be shuttled to the finish line for their safety. To make the cut off you must cover at least 2.5 miles per hour.
