Rock the Ridge is one of the many ways the Mohonk Preserve raises money throughout the year. This particular event may be one of the most intriguing. It is by no way shape or form easy but the challenge is fun. Teams comprised of 1, 2, 3, or 4 relay partners set out to run or hike the 50-mile course over 18 hours.

The fee to register is actually the fundraising part for the Preserve. Each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $325 to run the race. People are encouraged to get sponsors and are welcome to raise as much money as they can. The funds raised will help Mohonk in the mission of protecting The Shawangunk Mountains. Most people don't realize that Mohonk is the largest member and visitor-supported nature preserve in the state of New York.
