In keeping with the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy's mission, this unique two-person race celebrates the connection between
land and water.
You and your teammate will start at the Conservancy's Brownstone Barn and enjoy a mighty dash through the fields, woods and trails of Schwenksville to Spring Mountain. After scrambling up the steep side of the hill, you'll run through a wooded mountain top path studded with diabase boulders. And with what's left in your legs you'll tackle the descent back down to the canoes.
Next you and your buddy are off to paddle hard for 2+ miles on the Perkiomen to the finish! Are you in?
Entry fee includes:
