In 1993 a group of local trail runners were approached to help create an event that would weave together nature, fitness, and fun. In the twenty four years since its inception RidgeWalk & Run has moved from humble beginnings to an event that hosts up to 1100 participants who select from a varied pallet of running/walking challenges.

In 2014, RidgeWalk & Run experienced significant transformation. After twenty-one years of stewardship by an all-volunteer committee and the Wellsville Area Chamber of Commerce, RidgeWalk & Run passed into the capable hands of UR/Jones Memorial Hospital. The hospital was in search of a signature event that could, in tight money times, create a funding source dedicated to health and wellness programming throughout the UR/Jones service area. UR/Jones has a long history of commitment to our area and a solid plan for enhanced community wellness initiatives has been made possible by proceeds garnered from RidgeWalk & Run as well as the Glow Run 5K held each spring.

25 years has passed so quickly. We look forward to the weekend of October 15th and another successful event. You have our promise that UR/Jones will re-invest 100% of the profits realized from RidgeWalk & Run back into our community, exclusively earmarked for health and wellness activities.
