Williamsport: Loyalsock Flatwater Challenge

Sunday, June 24, 2018 - 10:00am

Location: Riverfront Park / Greevy PFBC boat launch, Old Montoursville Road, Williamsport, PA

Description: The Flatwater Challenge runs over the beautiful waters of the “Long Reach” of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River. Paddlers will start at the Greevy Boat Launch in Historical Riverfront Park and paddle downriver to the first buoy. A clockwise turn will send you upriver to to the second buoy. The course splits for the downriver leg. Recreation classes will follow the main channel and, river permitting, racing classes will take in the tight confines of the Sylvandell Gut. Use this lush technical section to increase your lead and lose that trailer or close in on the competition. The race finishes back at the Boat Launch.

There will be two separate races. Each race will be approximately 6.3 miles in length. This year each race will consist of 2 smaller loops to allow spectators a better view.

A map of the course will be available the day of the race. Presented by the Loyalsock Township Parks and Recreation Department: 570-567-7525.

Cost: $20 pre-registration, $25 race day. $15 youth. $7 for participation in second race.
