Sep 26

2nd Annual Dam Bridge Challenge! An event in support of the Lower Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association to protect the health of our River!

On September 26th during York County Watershed Weekend we are hosting the 2nd Annual Dam Bridge Challenge which is a series of 3 different "races" on the Susquehanna River at Lake Clarke starting and finishing at Lock 2 Recreation Area. The main event is a 10 mile paddle. Based on weather conditions and flow, entrants will either go down to the Safe Harbor Dam and back to Lock 2 (10miles) or paddle up the 462 bridge and back to Lock 2 (10 miles). The 2nd event will be a 3.5 mile paddle around Grace Island and back to Lock 2. The 3rd event will be a 1mi paddle from Lock 2 to Fishing Creek and back.

Registration for the 10mi event starts at 8:30am and will commence at 9:30am. Registration for the 3.5 mi event will start at 9:30am with a start time of 10:30am. Registration for the 1mi event will begin at 10:30am with a start time of 11:30am. Spacing of events is to ensure safety during the pandemic and to space people out as much as possible.

This event will serve as a fundraiser for the Lower Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association (LSRA) and an opportunity for our organization to bring together our communities in support of clean water! This is PRE-REGISTRATION EVENT ONLY! We WILL NOT be accepting walk-on entrants for this race.

Band: Boothill Getaway - 11-2pm

Food and drink served for participants.

ALL entrants will receive a gift/swag for entering along with prizes for 1st place finishers.

If our pandemic situation gets worse and we are under certain orders from the state of PA to not convene whatsoever, or if we suffer from high flow or severe weather that we must cancel this event, all entrants' fees are considered and appreciated as donations to the Lower Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association which also makes you a member of the organization!
