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 eight 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.

Our 28th year has arrived so quickly, but COVID-19 has changed everything. We still look forward to the week of October 10-18 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.
