For 2013, the Rock the Ridge 50 is reaching out to the entire community in an effort to raise awareness and money for charity. This year we're making it easier than ever to let all of our athletes, volunteers and supporters get involved and help make a difference.
What is Rock The Ridge?
Rock The Ridge is a 50-mile endurance challenge set in the natural beauty of the Mohonk Preserve, a vast, non-profit nature preserve situated in the mid-Hudson Valley of New York State. The goal is to traverse a 50-mile course within 24 hours by walking, running, or any combination thereof. The course winds along carriage trails and paths, through the forests and ridgelines of the Preserve, lands which The Nature Conservancy has described as “one of Earth's last great places.”
Whether you walk, run, or do a mixture of both, Rock the Ridge will be a spectacular outdoor adventure and an accomplishment that you’ll be proud of for a long time!
Rock the Ridge is also a fundraising event, supporting a great cause: preserving our environment. Funds will go to the Mohonk Preserve in support of its mission to safeguard the land and encourage people to experience nature.
