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 2019 race will be held on May 4, 2019, and there are three 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.

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 $300 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 $300, your credit card will be billed for any shortfall on May 2, 2019.
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 April 27, 2019.
Registration fees are non-refundable. Registered participants may withdraw from the event prior to May 2, 2019 and this will cancel their minimum fundraising commitment, but no refund of registration fees or race deferrals will be provided and any donations raised will not be refunded.
