The proceeds from the 2018 race registration fees and sponsorships will support the restoration and maintenance of the carriage roads. The network of more than 30 miles of carriage roads in Mohonk Preserve serves hundreds of thousands of visitors annually, including hosting races, such as Pfalz Point Trail Challenge.
