4th Annual Dam Bridge Challenge

September 17

The 4th Annual Dam Bridge Challenge features 3 races along the Susquehanna River, on Lake Clarke, starting and finishing near the Lock 2 Recreation Area. Kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddleboards are all welcome. 

The 1st race will be the main event and is a 10-mile race, spanning the round-trip distance between the Safe Harbor Dam and the 462 bridge. Based on weather conditions and flow, entrants will either go down to the Safe Harbor Dam and back to Lock 2 or paddle up the 462 bridge and back to Lock 2. 

The 2nd race is a 3.5-mile loop around Grace Island and back to Lock 2. 

The 3rd race is a 1-mile sprint to Fishing Creek and back to Lock 2. 

Registration varies from $40 – 75, depending on registration date and selected race; and your entrance fee includes a 1-year membership to the Lower Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association. Advance registration is best, and on-site check-in begins at 7:15am. Walk-up registration availability is not guaranteed. 

After the races, stay on-site at Shank’s Mare Outfitters for awards and a celebration! Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in each category for each race. Stay for our post-race party with delicious food, beverages and live music by Redeye Funk.   Free beer!  Donations welcome.  We’ll also feature hands-on, family-friendly educational activities.
