Rock the Ridge is a 50-mile race held on the Mohonk Preserve and adjacent lands in New York’s Shawangunk Mountains, an area that the Nature Conservancy has identified as “one of the Earth’s last great places.” The 24-hour time limit and carefully maintained carriage roads make it an endurance event that is accessible to a wide range of participants, including not only ultra-runners, but also hikers and walkers. Participants commit to raising a minimum of $250 in charitable donations in support of the Mohonk Preserve or other causes such as the Trail Conference’s conservation efforts.
