The canoe challenge, scheduled for Sunday, May 15, 2022,  is 9.5 miles long and takes about 2 hours to complete. Register below, by mail, or in person! But hurry, because this year organizers are limiting the number of canoes to 100. Registration and Parking is available at Northbrook Canoe Company, 1810 Beagle Road, West Chester, PA.

The day starts with a check-in from 8:00 to 10:00 am at Northbrook Canoe Company to pick up your athlete number-bibs, paddles, life jackets and the coveted Challenge T-shirts! While you are waiting, don’t forget to catch the mini rubber duck race for a chance to win some great prizes. Then, from 10:30 to 11:30 catch one of the shuttles to the start of the race. The race starts at Noon and ends at Northbrook. The event is open to all skill levels. Families are being encouraged to participate, in that it is a challenge more than a race.
