Check back soon for information on Rock The Ridge 2019!

You are in for an incredible time as you run, walk or hike the 50-mile course on the Preserve’s network of historic carriage roads featuring magnificent views and spectacular scenery.

The 2018 race will be held on May 19, 2018, and there are four ways to participate:

  • 50-mile – Individual: complete the entire 50-mile course solo.
  • 50-Mile – Team: complete the entire course together with a team of two, three, or four persons, crossing the finish line as a group.
  • Relay: Two- or four-member teams will complete the course in relay fashion, passing their timing chip from team member to team member. Relay legs are not of equal distance, allowing teams to assemble members of different levels of experience and ability.
  • Virtual Ridge Rocker: For those unable to participate as runners, hikers or walkers, but who would still like to support Mohonk Preserve’s mission. Virtual Ridge Rockers may sign up and fundraise to benefit our award-winning conservation science, environmental education, and land protection and stewardship programs. (No registration fee or fundraising minimum required).

Registration Fee

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 dinner. It does not cover the fundraising minimum.

Registration for Rock The Ridge is limited, be sure to register early!

Rock The Ridge is a fundraiser to support Mohonk Preserve’s mission. There is a minimum charitable fundraising commitment of $250 for each participant, which you will guarantee with the same credit card you use to pay 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, many will proudly sponsor you. Donations are tax-deductible and go directly to Mohonk Preserve, which is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Contributions support the Preserve's award-winning conservation science, environmental education, and land protection and stewardship programs. If you do not meet the fundraising minimum of $250, your credit card will be billed for any shortfall on May 16, 2018.
In order to allow the necessary time for validation and processing of all registered teams and individuals, the deadline for registration is 11:59 p.m. on May 12, 2018.
Registration fees are non-refundable. Registered participants may withdraw from the event at any time prior to the event and this will cancel their minimum fundraising commitment, but they will not receive a refund of their registration fee and any donations raised will not be refunded.
