The Rock The Ridge course is set almost entirely on carriage roads. Although there is a significant amount of elevation change, the roads are wide and level in most places with gradual slopes, enabling a manageable course for those who choose to make completing the distance their primary goal. At the same time, the runnable surface of the carriage roads sets up well for seasoned endurance athletes who may be looking to make a good time or even set a 50-mile personal record.
Please note that the course is subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances. Any course changes will be posted prior to race day.
