Breakneck Point Trail Runs

Event Details

The race course at Breakneck Point is quite remarkable. It covers jeep trails, single-track, historic estate paths, and winding single-track both open and technical. It features several profile climbs and descents which offer more elevation gain and loss per mile than all but a handful of SkyRunning events. Its signature climb, Breakneck Ridge, one of the top hikes in the country according to and Newsweek, is steep, gnarly, exposed, and absolutely beautiful. Entrants range from some of the finest mountain and technical trail runners in the country, to those content with a chill day of hiking and running a really beautiful and challenging day on the trails with no eye for speed or competition.

With registration you’ll get aid stations goodies, post-race food from Fittnell Farms Catering, and a race t-shirt. A trucker hat can be purchased separately as an add-on. Portions of your entry will go toward donations to Hudson Highlands State Park Preserve and the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference. Both continue to do quite a bit of heavy lifting on the trails we’ll be running.
