RIDGE TO BRIDGE is Cancelled!

We hope that everyone in the Bay Area remains as safe and healthy as possible. To help stop the spread of COVID-19, all Ridge Trail spring events are cancelled through May 15. 

This is an unprecedented situation for the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council. Therefore it will take us some time to figure out processes to take care of all participants, including refunds. Thank you for your patience and support. Please stay tuned for next steps.
