2013 High Rock Challenge is scheduled for Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28. New this year is the Sunday, April 28 Solo 5K Sprint along a portion of the High Rock Challenge Course. This year’s High Rock Challenge will have its start/finish at the Henry Kaufmann Camp Grounds on Manor Road. This is a different location from the past several years but the site of the very first High Rock Challenges eleven years ago!

Two-member teams must run together at all times and compete in mystery events, which are located throughout the approximately 10K (and no longer than 13K) course. Mystery events are cleverly designed and encourage teamwork as well as mental and physical acumen. Location and race details to follow. Events are not revealed until race day when you’re on the course.

The High Rock Challenge Adventure Race is held in memory of NYPD Officer John Kelly. Proceeds from the High Rock Challenge help support Greenbelt trail maintenance and environmental education programs.

Registration is now open. See links below to register.
