The Friends are partnering with Salomon for the New York Trail Series for the Castle to River Run on March 31st 2019!
The Salomon New York Trail Series is a three race ultra series taking place 2018 - 2019. It's comprised of the Breakneck Marathon (Sep 8th), Water Gap 50k (Oct 13th), and a brand new 50k - Castle to River (March 31st, 2019) - in Garrison, NY. Castle-to-River also includes a half-marathon, 5k and kids run!
The 2018 Castle-to-River will be held on March 31st 2019.
Each race is scenic and uniquely challenging. Breakneck will crush your quads with steep climbs and descents; Water Gap is fast and flat along the Delaware river; and Castle to River combines speedy single track with steep climbs on historic Hudson valley trails.
Sign-up. Run. Kick ass. You are in!!
Registrations are now open for all three events on ultra signup. We would recommend signing up as soon as you can. Water Gap and Castle to River may not fill-up; however, Breakneck has sold out the last two years. This year we are 1/4 full already. And we have been told that the Breakneck trail will be open for the race!

Live Edge Picnic Table Sponsorship: $1500
As beautiful and unique as the trees produced from, live edge wood refers to the natural edge of the wood under the bark after it is cut. Live edge wood keeps the original lines of the trunk along its edges, portraying the wood in its very naturalistic state. See actual tables at the Rec Center!
All monies raised will support the completion of the pavilion at Philipstown Park
Park Pavilion Progress!
We are getting close to completion on the pavilion at Philipstown Park. The foundation has been poured, the conduit for the electrical is in the ground, and so much more. Stay tuned for more updates and how you can help make this dream become reality!
