The Rock Run has been a staple of Massachusetts ultrarunning since 1988.
The approximately 50-mile run/swim ultra around the island of Nantucket, Mass., will take a hiatus in 2016, however. According to the event’s website, “Race Director Jamie Ranney, suffered a leg injury” and is facing a lengthy recovery that has interfered with his ability to put on the event.
This year’s event was slated to take place on Saturday, Sept. 3.
The race is scheduled to return on Sept. 2, 2017.
