Now in its tenth year, Rock The Ridge, a 50-mile endurance challenge, was held on Saturday, May 6, 2023. Over 500 runners and hikers hit the course across carriage roads and trails along the Shawangunk Ridge and helped raise money   to support the Preserve’s mission to protect the Shawangunk Mountains region and inspire people to care for, enjoy, and explore their natural world.

Thanks to all of our participants and sponsors for helping us to raise over $300,000 in support of Mohonk Preserve!
