Join us for the 2022 Finger Lakes Adventure Challenge, where your first challenge will be to kayak the water course in Peabody Lake. You will get into your boat for a 5K paddle on the water trail that winds through the length of the park. Return back to the start and take off on foot for a 5K run on Kelley Branch Mountain Bike Trail. The trail will lead you through the wetlands of Kelley Branch Creek then along the ridges and pits of the reclaimed strip mine. All finishers will receive a participant medal. 

Sit-on-top kayaks will be available for rent for $25 paid the day of the event. Make your boat reservation by calling the park office at 573-443-5315 between Aug. 22 and Sept. 7, or bring you own canoe or kayak to compete in. Tandem boats will not be eligible for prizes.
