Expansive vistas overlooking the rugged Hudson Valley, beautiful single track, historic ruins, a cumulative elevation gain on par with Sky Races, and a few of the steepest ascents and descents of any trail race in the country. the breakneck point trail runs will offer entrants, regardless of pace, a pretty epic day of adventure on beautiful trails surrounded and supported by a great community. The course at Breakneck Point is quite remarkable. It covers jeep trails, single-track, historic estate paths, and winding single-track both open and technical. It features several profile climbs and descents which offer more elevation gain and loss per mile than all but a handful of SkyRunning events, a remarkable stat given that it’s only 90 minutes from NYC. It’s signature climb, Breakneck Ridge, one of the top hikes in the country according to trails.com and Newsweek (as well as a guy named Carl from what I hear – that could be rumor though) is steep, gnarly, exposed, and absolutely beautiful. Entrants range from some of the finest mountain and technical trail runners in the country, to those content with a chill day of hiking and running a really beautiful and challenging day on the trails with no eye for speed or competition.
