Note: Registration cost already includes the $10 per car parking fee charged to us by the park. The park counts the number of cars entering for the race and charges us the parking fee directly. You can maximize our charitable contribution by carpooling, walking, or riding to the park.
The Raven Rocks 10k Run is a the first new trail run at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation in Cross River, NY in over 20 years.
The second running of the race will be Sunday, November 13th, 2016 at 9am. The race will start in the Meadow — same spot where the Leatherman’s Loop begins. But instead of heading down towards the river as the Loop does, the Raven Rocks Run 10k course climbs up to the two highest points in the park (Raven Rocks Overlook and the Fire Tower Summit) before heading back for a downhill and flat finish.
The course passes by the site of the former Blue Trail fire tower which is the highest point in the park. We are supporting the Trailside Museum in their efforts to bring back the tower to its former spot in the park. See Course Map page for course details.
More information about the race and tower project is on the About page and the FAQ page.
The Raven Rocks 10k Run is participating in the Trail Mix Trail Series in 2016 as the sixth and final race of that series. You don’t have to participate in the series to run the Raven Rocks Run — all are welcome!
We are looking forward to November when we will run this event for the second time!
Note: we will have limited same day registration from 7:00am-8:45am on race morning. If you are registering the day of the race, please come early and get it done before the big rush. Cash or checks OK. Limited cell service means we can't take credit cards at the park unfortunately. Thanks!
