“Have Fun Storming the Castle!” Do you remember this line from The Princess Bride movie? One of America’s most beloved movies is making it’s mark in our program calendar this year. Join us as we stage our own version with an untimed fun run or walk this Labor Day Weekend. Guests of all ages are encouraged to participate. Run or walk your way up the hill during this family friendly event. Tickets are available online – scroll to the bottom of the page to get your tickets today!

Run/Walk Logistics

Run or walk this 2.2 mile trek. Start at the Lower Gatehouse on Route 171, traverse up the scenic road past “The Pebble,” skirt along the waterfalls, travel past the Carriage House Restaurant and work your way to the mansion.

All runners and walkers should be finished the 2.2 miles by 9:30am. Please keep this in mind if you feel you would need longer than the hour and half to complete the trek up our mountain. We will have a vehicle following and can bring anyone up who doesn’t feel they can make it to the top by 9:30am.
