Description

The Raven Rocks Run is a challenging 10k trail run at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation in Cross River, NY.

The sixth running of the race will be this coming November. There will be two participation options.

First option is in-person Sunday, November 8th, 2020 with rolling 15 minute starts (for groups of up to 25 runners) from 8 am - 10:30 am.

Second option is a virtual option where you can run the actual marked course any time between Thursday, November 5th and Monday, November 9th, 2020

The race will start in the Meadow next to the parking lot. This is different than past years to accommodate the rolling starts. The course passes by the spot where the Leatherman’s Loop begins. Instead of heading 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 (mostly) downhill and (relatively) 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 working towards getting 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 of our ravenrocksrun.org website.

We are looking forward to November when we will run this event for the SIXTH time -- and we hope we can accommodate all who wish to run and keep everyone socially distant and COVID-safe!

Important: Our race plans are contingent on approval from the Westchester County Department of Parks, Recreation, and Conservation. If the COVID-19 situation changes and this approval is revoked and we are unable to offer the in-person event, we will still have the virtual race on-site at the park and we will expand the dates the course is marked to allow for two weekends to complete the race. We will also offer race registration fee refund or deferrals to 2021 for runners no questions asked. If we have placed the shirt order before a refund is requested we will send the race shirt via mail to the runner.

Note: Registration cost already factors in the car parking fee charged to us by the park which is $10 per car. 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.

Questions?
Race T-Shirts

Why an extra cost for shirts? For many races the shirts are underwritten by sponsors whose names appear on the shirts. Our races have no sponsors other than the runners who run in them. This lets our Raven Rocks Run shirts be ad free. They are unique for each year of the race. If you run in a lot of races you probably have a ton of race shirts, but few will be like this one.

We think the Raven Rocks Run shirts are amazing but we don't want you to get one unless you want it.

The price of the shirt covers the cost of the shirt plus the commission of the artist who created the artwork. Income after expenses is donated to Friends of Trailside, Art in the Parks, the Lewisboro Volunteer Ambulance Corps, and other local not-for-profit organizations.
