29th Annual — October 17, 2021


WELCOME BACK!  After a very long year we are so excited to have the opportunity to offer an in person event to you this fall.  


The 29th Annual RidgeWalk & Run Event, located in beautiful southwestern New York State takes place each fall as the hillsides are turning into a kaleidoscope of rich reds, oranges and yellows. Our event encompasses many events so if you are looking for a casual stroll through the woods or like a competitive long run we are just what you are looking for.


Because we don’t know exactly what October will bring us, the RidgeWalk team is pleased to announce that this year's RidgeWalk & Run will offer two options for participation: 1. Virtual Participation or 2. In-Person Participation. Here is how it will work:


· Register for our Virtual walks or runs (one registration for any event of your choice) (

· We highly encourage that in the spirit of the RidgeWalk you do this on trails, however we recognize that may not be possible for everyone

· Take pictures and share them and your story with the rest of the community!

 Be sure to show off your past RidgeWalk swag!
