“I just signed up for the Shawangunk Ridge 30.”
There was silence on my end of the phone as I took in what Freebird had said. I attempted to deflect: But, we did that last year. He responded nonchalanty, So it will be easy.
The Shawangunk Ridge Trail (SRT) is a 70 mile hiking trail that traverses the entire length of the Shawangunk mountains. The not-for-profit Run Wild Inc. created an event to celebrate the preservation of this incredible open space by encouraging people to come out and see its natural beauty. Directed by long distance runner/hiker and barefoot guru Ken Posner, the SRT Run is self-supported with an emphasis on minimalism.
