July 19, 2014 - 3rd Annual Run the Ridge
Run the Ridge at Maple Ski Ridge is a 5k Mud Run designed by local military mud runners. The features consist of untouched terrain from mother nature and the others built by some diabolical minds ready to test your skills. Each year more challenges have been added so be prepared, 2014 will offer newly opened terrain in areas that have not seen foot traffic in decades.

WHY & WHAT FOR?-
Why? A very special friend of Maple Ski Ridges personally is aware of the work that the Vet Center does.
A little research and a personal recommendation was all we needed to choose the center.
The Albany Vet Center offers services to our local Veterans and active military and their families. The support they offer in invaluable- Our Military need and deserve all the assistance we can offer them.
Getting to know the center it was easy to find what they needed- bottled water,bus tokens and gift cards to help where it was needed most. Many families that the center serves were helped when it was needed most.
The need in 2014 continues to grow.
Testing your endurance is only the beginning. Having fun with friends, family and mud is pretty awesome and the after PARTY promises to be ... well a party. Music, rockin out on a Saturday afternoon, Cold beer and other beverages, food for body and soul (that's the beer). Yup and your not gonna find grandmas music either. This is your party...
OK...We know that Maple Ski Ridge's vertical will not leave you breathless. Elevation, yup we have some... But for what we lack in straight up- we will more than make up for in sheer craziness in "Features"; Mud..water.. ledges..tires(obligatory).. hills..slop and all other types of things for you to go over -thru -around -and under.
We don't think you will be disappointed. But don't be scared! Remember this run is meant to be fun and to push you to do YOUR best. Never feel that you have to do something that you're uncomfortable with, - whether it's this run or anything else in life.
The KEY MASTER will be here. lock your car and leave the keys with...the key master....
