Wallkill River race set for Sept. 14

Posted

The Wallkill River Watershed Alliance is hosting the 1st annual Great Wallkill River Race in New Paltz on Saturday, September 14 (with a rain date of Sunday September 15).

Unlike the New Paltz Regatta, competitors will use traditional craft such as kayaks and canoes to race a one mile course from Sojourner Truth Park to the River to Ridge Trailhead and back again. The race is a time for thecommunity to come together to enjoy and celebrate the river.

Boat drop off begins at 9 a.m., launch at 10 a.m., and the race begins at 11 a.m.

Following the race there will be a celebration with prizes for different categories of racers, live music, food, and an environmental resource fair with hands-on activities for the whole family.

A $25 registration fee helps support protecting and restoring the Wallkill River.

Spectators are free.
