If you have already registered, thanks and see you at the Rez!


raven-rocks-bib-2015-mgWe recommend pre-ordering a race shirt with your registration. We have ordered extra shirts — but sizes are limited. If you order with your registration we will definitely have your size. If you wait until the event to buy a shirt, the correct size may not be available.

If you can’t run but would like to help out by volunteering, please contact us ASAP. All of our races are volunteer driven and we couldn’t do it without them!

2015-RavenRocksRun-Design_v5_SINGLE-smallerThe race will start and finish in The Meadow at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation – the same spot as the Leatherman’s Loop. But instead of going along the river, the Raven Rocks Run course seeks out higher ground. Runners will pass the two highest points in the park: The Raven Rocks overlook and the site of the former Fire Tower before heading back downhill to the Meadow finish.

Raven Rocks is the final race in the 2015 Trail Mix Trail Series. If you are interested in next year, check out the website. If you are in the series, click here to see the standings as of the first four races (Run the Farm will go in once it is finalized).

If you are not sure if you have registered — or you want to check on a friend or family member — you can confirm registration status here: https://runsignup.com/Race/FindARunner/?raceId=25402

flying-raven-4-raven-rocks-textThe race raises funds for Friends of Trailside Museum and Ward Pound Ridge Reservation. The Friends group supports the mission of the Museum and Park by funding events and capital projects in the park. Members of the Friends group also volunteer at the museum and the park and help with education programs, camp groups, and events throughout the year. During Raven Rocks registration you can join the Friends as a member and support their mission.

If you can’t race this year, you can sign up as a member without race registration.

Registered runners should be on the lookout for an updated logistics note a few days before the race day.

See you on the trails!
