We have a lot going on so scroll all the way down!
Turn To Us is taking ROW RUN RIDE outside with Pocono Biking and Pocono Whitewater!
You will check-in at the Mauch Chunk Lake main boat launch parking lot at 8:30am. After checking in, your day will start with a run/walk down the wooded path along the lake to the dam. There, Pocono Biking will fit you for a bike and provide a bike helmet. Enjoy a ride down the Switchback Trail until you reach Pocono Biking in downtown Jim Thorpe. Return the bike, then head down to the river for your rafting briefing for the 8-mile whitewater rafting adventure! An all-you-can eat buffet will be served midway. Buses will shuttle back to Mauch Chunk Lake.
RATE: $45 per person - open to anyone ages 8 and up.
INCLUDES: Water, snacks, bike rental, helmet, life jacket, 8-mile rafting trip, all-you-can eat lunch (hot dogs, potato salad, chips, drink)
RESERVATIONS: Reservations MUST BE made directly through Pocono Whitewater at 1-800-WHITEWATER(800-944-8
WHAT TO WEAR: Wear running/biking clothing to start the trip. You may bring a bag with change of clothes for the rafting portion. Bags must close and be clearly labeled with your name. We will take them to Pocono Biking so you can change before you hit the river. No flip flops are allowed on the river - wear old sneakers or water shoes.
This is not a race as the group will raft together.
Event is rain or shine. You WILL get wet on the river.
While this is a fundraiser for Turn To Us, this is a great way for Turn To Us to get the community out in nature, get active, and have fun!
