High Rock Challenge 2020 Important Update

Dear Friend of the Greenbelt:

We know that you have been eagerly waiting news about High Rock Challenge 2020, and we thank you for your patience.

Unfortunately, because of logistical roadblocks beyond our control, we have decided, after very careful consideration, to take a one-year break from presenting the High Rock Challenge.

To be clear, this is not the end of our iconic community event. We will be resuming the event in 2021, and will spend the intervening year ensuring that the race returns better than ever.

Please know that this news is as disappointing to us as it is to you, and that we will notify you as soon as next year’s date is finalized.

In the meantime, we invite you to join us at other upcoming outdoor events in the Greenbelt such as this year’s Cold Feat 5/10K trail race on Saturday, February 22, group hikes, and our Family Outdoor Adventure Day in Willowbrook Park on Saturday, June 6.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us through email at 

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
