The annual Patriot Highlander was held on Saturday September, 17, 2016, in Cobleskill New York. This annual event held at the Sunny Knolls Farm, encompasses a running course with numerous obstacles including; rope climbs, walls and a swim. There are a number of classes including multiple classes for children. The proceeds of this event support local wounded veterans through the Wounded Warriors Fund. The Patriot Highland Challenge is an independent non-profit organization.
This year’s event once again had a large State Police presence as they served to escort wounded veterans to the event, provided traffic control and even had teams of members that entered and raced competitively. Each year State Police Members from Troop G show up in force to support this wonderful event, whether as competitors, volunteers or in their official work capacity. As this event continues to grow in size and popularity each year, the State Police will assuredly continue their support of this wonderful event as they have since its inception.
