Set in the natural beauty of the Shawangunk Mountains of New York’s Hudson Valley, an area described as “one of Earth’s last great places,” the goal is to run or hike a 50-mile course within 18 hours – on your own or as part of a two, three or four-person relay team. What better way to spend a day than winding along well-maintained carriage roads, through lush forests and over ridgelines with magnificent vistas. Whether you’re an experienced ultra-runner, a first timer, or part of a 2, 3 or 4 person relay team, Rock The Ridge is simply an unforgettable experience.

Now in its ninth year, Rock The Ridge is a major fundraiser to support Mohonk Preserve’s mission to protect the Shawangunk Mountains region and inspire people to care for, enjoy and explore their natural world. With more than 8,000 acres of mountain ridges, forests, fields, streams, ponds and other unique and beautiful places, Mohonk Preserve is the largest member and visitor-supported nature preserve in New York State. Participants agree to complete the minimum fundraising along with their registration fee with prizes awarded to top fundraisers.
