We will miss you all in person this year as the event will be held virtually to uphold possible state regulations of gatherings. Separate but together is our theme this year!
The 8th annual 5K color run/walk, 6K paddle race and 11K paddle/run relay race WILL BE A VIRTUAL EVENT THIS YEAR. All proceeds raised will be donated to local community first-responders, hospitals and clinics for the Covid-19 pandemic affecting our area of Delaware County.
The event will be held throughout the month of July. Participants will log their own times with the support of running apps or GPS to record and send it for an official time. Participants may do a 5K run, walk or a 6K paddle on a local river. Participants in the surrounding area of Downsville, NY are encouraged to run the regular route of the race (we will have markers out for locals during the month of July) or paddle the East Branch of the Delaware River as in the race. Participants may also compete in the duathlon where they paddle a 6K and then run a 5K for a combined time.

You may register online at the race roster website. Registration will close one week before the end of July. Your event must be completed by the last day in July to be entered in the final results.
