In its inaugural year the Hudson River 50 aims to bring a world class ultra trail race to New York City’s own backyard. Starting and finishing on the banks of the Hudson River, with views of the New York City skyline, the race will consist of two twenty-five mile loops, along the Long Path and Shore Trail in the Palisades Interstate Park. There is also a 25 mile option for anyone who wants to just race a single loop.
4:30am Check-in at Ross Dock Picnic Area
6:00am 50 Mile Race Starts
6:30am 25 Mile Race Starts
12pm First Loop Cut-Off for 50 Mile Runners (6 hours)
6pm Race Ends (12 hours)
The race will be staged at the Ross Dock Picnic Area in Fort Lee, New Jersey. This is just over the George Washington Bridge, and an easy drive from anywhere in NYC. There should be plenty of parking available.
We are in the process of securing a room block at a hotel close to the race for anyone traveling to town for the race. Check back in the coming weeks for this information.
Race for the River
We are very excited to announce that Riverkeeper is an official Hudson River 50 race partner. For those of you not familiar with Riverkeeper, it’s an environmental organization tasked with protecting the Hudson River and the watersheds that provide NYC with its drinking water. Considering the importance of the river to this event, and the park in which the race takes place, the partnership is a natural fit.
Anytime someone signs up for this event $5 from their registration fee will be donated directly to Riverkeeper. Additionally, on April 30 we will be hosting a course preview run at the park and will be working with Riverkeeper on a river shoreline cleanup event that will take place immediately following the run. We’ll be sharing lots more about all of this in the coming weeks, but for now we encourage you to follow @riverkeeeper and to check out their website at www.riverkeeper.org to learn more about the important work they do.
