Rosendale Runs Results

While the weather may not have cooperated everyone seemed to take the race in stride and looked tough doing so. Congratulations to all runners in both races. I’d like to thank all the volunteers who without them we couldn’t put on such races. We’re especially thankful on days like today with tough conditions that these wonderful people donate their time to make the event great for the runners.

Here are the results for both race…

4.4 Results – 2017 Rosendale Runs Plains Run Results

Half Marathon Results – 2017 Rosendale Runs Half Marathon Results

Hope you’re all home dry and warm. We’ll see you all soon.

2017 Pfalz Point Trail Challenge Draft Results

Nice, warm day today for the Mohonk Preserve’s annual Pfalz Point 10 Mile Trail Challenge. The course record was broken by over a minute. Thanks to all the runners and volunteers.

The draft results are below…

There’s 1 outstanding issue…Bib #95 was written down for both place 102 and 161. I assume one of these wasn’t actually bib #95.

102 – Bib 95 – 1:39:51
161 – Bib 95 – 1:53:04
I’ll be checking the pictures as they come in to hopefully get this figured out but please take a look at the results and let me know if you are bib #95 or you are missing from the results.
A couple upcoming races that I’d like to make you aware of…

Rosendale Runs Volunteers Needed!

Rosendale Runs – Half Marathon & 4.4 Mile Plains Run is taking place on Saturday September 30th. The race goes off at 8:30am.

We are in need of more volunteers for the races then for our other races because it on public roads and rail trail crossings and two finish lines. There will also be a few water stops which will need volunteers.

100% of the proceeds go to the town of Rosendale Youth Rec programs

If you, your family, or friends can volunteer please contact me at

As always volunteering will result in a free entry to a Shawangunk Runners event in the future.

2017 New Paltz XC Summer Series Fun Run Info

Hi All

Tomorrow night is the Fun Run & Awards for the 2017 New Paltz XC Series. The event will be held at Garvan’s Gastropub (map). We have been asked to have you park BOCES just off Rt 32 & Huguenot Street. If you park in the NW corner it’ll be closest to Garvan’s.

Here is a link to where to park (map). I believe there’s a path from the parking that connects to the rail trail back there.

Weather’s not looking great so dress accordingly and maybe bring a change of clothes.
See you tomorrow evening!

NPXCSS#4 Lous Run Results & Fun Run Info

I would have been surprised if we hadn’t had at least one muggy race. Glad to see all the smiling faces for what was the last race in the series Monday night at the Mohonk Preserve. The earlier start time definitely helped with darkness and we have plans to discuss the possibility of changing the times for all races next year.

Thanks again to all the amazing volunteers who came back each week to help out. There would be no races without them. If you seem them at the Fun Run / Awards please make sure to thank them.

Here are the results for Week 4 – 2017NPXCS4 Results

Here is the results of the series showing who was able to get an award – 2017NPXCSS4 Points
(Reminder that to get an award you needed at least 4 points and to have run at least 2 races)

The Fun Run and Awards will be held on Monday August 7th at Garvan’s Gastropub in New Paltz, NY.

Draft results from New Paltz XC Summer Series #3: Undercliff / Overcliff

Well it was a surprisingly cool July evening last night at the Mohonk Preserve. I’m glad to see the new bridge over 44/55 is up and open and looking much better than the old one. Hopefully you all enjoyed a nice run on the carriage roads. With the grand opening of the bridge being today we wanted to make sure we kept it looking as nice as possible and thus ran into some space issues. These will be discussed and resolved for next year.

We have a few unknown runners that I need help finding / resolving in this weeks results. Please take a look through the results and shoot me an email at if you’re missing from the results and know which spot should be yours. Once I get these resolved I’ll get another post up with all the weeks results and point standings.

2017NPXCSS3 Results Draft

Next week is the last official race of the series and we’ll be at Spring Farm Trailhead for Lou’s Run. 4+ miles on single track trails and carriage roads.


New Paltz XC Summer Series Update

Important info first…

Parking for tomorrow’s race (Undercliff/Overcliff) at West Trapps Bridge is in the West Trapps Parking lot or the Mohonk Preserve Visitors Center. There is absolutely NO parking on 44/55. Not only will you be towed, at your own expense, but you’ll put our reputation in jeopardy possibly causing us to no longer host races at Mohonk Preserve. A shuttle should be running from the Visitors Center to the bridge but there’s also a short hike up. It would be a good warmup. Please carpool and arrive early to reduce stress on both yourself and parking. Thanks!

Sorry for the strict tone but had to make sure we got that info out there. 🙂

I’m still struggling with a single issue related to a single racer from Week 1 and the Age Groups. I’ve attached the current results and point standings for the series below.

Week 1: Pattersons Pellet – 2017NPXCS1 Results
Week 2: Blueberry Run – 2017NPXCS2 Results

Point Standings through 2 races – Week 2 Point Standings

See you tomorrow night!
