Get outside this fall!


Choose when, where and how you participate as the Three Rivers Land Trust community unites from afar to celebrate their love for the outdoors! We challenge you to cover as many miles as possible in the months of September, October, and November either by foot, bike, or paddle! You can choose to walk, hike, run, kayak, canoe, raft, or bike outdoors!

How it works

Head to our event page on to register for the Outdoor Challenge, which starts at $35.00, family and youth discounts are available! Once you sign up, log every outdoor activity (by foot, by bike, or by paddle) you complete between September 1st and November 26th on the runsignup website to vie for the top spot of total miles covered.
