Rock The Ridge
Rock The Ridge is a 50-mile endurance challenge and environmental fundraiser set in the natural beauty of Mohonk Preserve, described as “one of Earth’s last great places.” The goal is to run, walk, or hike a 50-mile course within 24 hours. The course winds along well-maintained carriage roads, through lush forests and over ridgelines with magnificent vistas.
Covering 50 miles in one stretch is a major achievement, but you don’t have to be a marathon runner!
The 24-hour time limit accommodates people with a wide range of abilities, including walkers and hikers, as well as joggers, runners, and ultramarathoners. We’ve hosted elite athletes alongside first-time 50-milers and relay teams that walked the entire distance. Whether you walk, run, or do some of each, Rock The Ridge will be an accomplishment that you’ll remember with pride.
