In memory of Police Officer John Kelly, the High Rock Challenge is an adventure run in the Greenbelt Trail System of Staten Island that is roughly ten kilometers in length. Teams consisting of two members must run together at all times and compete in five mystery events which are located throughout the course. Mystery events are designed to challenge and encourage teamwork as well as mental and physical strength. There will be food, beverages and entertainment at the finish. Previous year’s challenges brought competitors face to face with a 50 pound sandbag, an 8 foot wall, a word scramble test, a low crawl net and a suspended wire bridge over a murky pond. This year's race is being held on Saturday, April 27th.
For 2013, we're happy to announce the addition of the High Rock Challenge Sprint race! This race will have the same elements of the classic High Rock Challenge but is shorter (approximately 5K in distance) and is for solo runners. If you're new to running, can't find a teammate or just want to test your meddle against yourself - the High Rock Challenge Sprint is for you! The race will be held on Sunday, April 28th.
