Breakneck Point Trail Run, 25k, 42k, Beacon, NY
Breakneck Point provides the signature climb to what should be one of the toughest courses in North America. There are steep pitches, some hand of over foot climbing, technical rock sections of trail, and significant cumulative elevation gain. But it’s also one of the more beautiful w/panoramic river and mountain vistas, beautiful and historic singletrack, and the staging for a grand adventure for runners of all levels. This is not a PR course, join us for the adventure, vistas, and community, and leave knowing that you just completed one of the toughest trail courses anywhere.

We believe it is the largest trail race east of the Mississippi River in the United States and possibly the third largest trail race* in the United States (depending on the year), with over 1,100 finishers in 2011, nearly 1,200 finishers in 2012, and over 1,200 finishers in 2013.
