The Bricktown Challenge

by PennPaddler

Attention Canoers and kayakers, you can participate in the first annual Bricktown Challenge at the beautiful Bald Eagle State Park in northcentral Pennsylvania on July 11th, 2009.

There are two events.

8 mile race for serious racers 

4 mile race for beginners

The Bricktown Challenge is a canoe and kayak race to announce and contribute to the construction of  a 14 mile rail/trail that connects Beech Creek Borough, Bald Eagle State Park, Howard Borough, and the PHMC site at Curtin Village. The race has two events, an 8 mile race for advanced paddlers and a 4 mile race for beginner paddlers.

The Beech Creek Watershed Association proposed the idea of a greenway along the Beech Creek to promote the rich brick making history of the towns along the trail. The Beech Creek Watershed Association is the major sponsor of the event.

All proceeds from the event will go towards the building of the Brick Town Trail.
