22nd Annual

Walkers enjoying the scenic beauty of RidgeWalk.Runners competing in one of three different competative runs.

As footsteps traverse the forest floor, brightly colored leaves trickle from the hardwoods, swirling deep down into the secluded hollows. A gentle thermal slides up the slope, the soft touch elevates the soul. Once atop Western New York’s highest point, temporary trail signs loom ahead explaining the history of the massive rock formations, noting flora and fauna specimens, and historical artifacts. RidgeWalk & Run is one of the area’s largest and certainly one of the most totally unique fall active lifestyle events.

In 1993 a group of trail runners were approached to help create an event that would weave together nature, fitness, and fun. In the years since its inception RidgeWalk & Run has moved from humble beginnings to an event hosting up to 1100 participants in a variety of running/walking events.

In 2014, RidgeWalk & Run experienced its greatest transformation. After twenty-one years of stewardship by an all-volunteer committee and the Wellsville Area Chamber of Commerce, RidgeWalk & Run passed from the Chamber into the capable hands of Jones Memorial Hospital.

“The Jones” has a long history of commitment to our area and significant plans for enhanced community wellness initiatives made possible by RidgeWalk & Run.
