Race Information

The course for the Breakneck Point Trail Runs 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 that offer more elevation gain and loss per mile than all but a handful of SkyRunning events, a remarkable stat considering that it's only 90 minutes from NYC. Its signature climb, Breakneck Ridge, is one of the top hikes in the country according to trails.com and Newsweek. It's 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.

The course may also be one of the most difficult trail half or full marathons that you will ever complete. There are technical and steep pitches including the signature Breakneck Point that at points require climbing and tolerance of exposure, technical stretches of footing, and significant elevation gain and loss. The risk associated with this terrain is significant and only those seasoned and prepared for this terrain should join the entrant pool.
