The Raven Rocks 10k Run is a new trail run at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation in Cross River, NY.
The first running of the race will be Sunday, November 15th, 2015 at 9am. The race will start in the Meadow — same spot where the Leatherman’s Loop begins. Instead of heading towards the river as the Loop does, the Raven Rocks 10k course climbs up eventually reaching two of the 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 Cross River Mountain 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, the FAQ page, and this article about the Friends of Trailside flyer. Or if you have questions, you can get in touch with us via the contact form.
The Raven Rocks 10k Run is participating in the Trail Mix Trail Series in 2015 as the sixth and final race of that series.
You don’t have to participate in the series to run the Raven Rocks Run though — all are welcome!
We are looking forward to November when we will run this event for the first time!
