ROCK THE RIDGE April 30, 2016
Congratulations on accepting the challenge to take on Rock The Ridge! This is a decision that you will remember with pride, and we're extremely excited to have you involved in this spectacular event.
Now for the nuts and bolts about how to take part.
The 2016 race will be held on April 30, 2016, and just as last year, is divided into three primary divisions:
- Individual 50-mile - Individuals complete the entire 50-mile course.
- Team 50-Mile - Teams of two, three, or four persons cover the entire course together and will cross the finish line as a group.
- Team Relay - Two- or four-member teams in which members will complete the course in relay fashion. Relay legs are not of equal distance, allowing teams to assemble runners of varying degrees of experience and ability.
|Division||Thru November 30, 2015||Dec 1, 2015 to Mar 14, 2016||After Mar 14, 2016|
* - Fees are per person, not per team
The registration fee is for each participant in all divisions. This fee covers all race amenities, including takeaways such as a participant t-shirt, a finisher's medal, and a pre-race meal. It does not cover the charitable component of your entry.
As a participant, your financial commitment is as follows:
- A registration fee (see above fee schedule) for each participant in all divisions. Registration fees are used to cover the cost of the event. Please understand that these fees are non-refundable.
- A minimum charitable fund-raising commitment of $250 for each participant, which you will guarantee with the same credit card you use to pay for the registration fee. When you tell friends, family, and co-workers that you’re taking on a 50-mile challenge and doing something to preserve our environment for future generations, they will proudly sponsor you. Donations are tax-deductible and go directly to the Mohonk Preserve, which is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. To the extent you raise less than $250, your credit card will be billed for the shortfall on April 26, 2016.
In order to allow the necessary time for validation and processing of all registered teams and individuals, the deadline for both registration and completion of your fundraising is 11:59 p.m. on April 26, 2016.
The registration cap for Rock The Ridge is 650 runners, which is an aggregrate total across all three divisions. Be sure to register early to secure your spot!
