You will be given an overview of the day and then travel to the Leesport Post Office located at (4 East Wall St. Leesport 19533) to gain access to the river. Rental equipment will be provided by Blue Marsh Outdoors (BMO) for $35 per person, which includes a kayak or canoe, paddles, life jackets and equipment transportation. This is an open event, you may participate if you have your own equipment. (Tubes will not be available for rent through BMO.)

All participants are required to wear a life jacket and sign a waiver form. Please wear appropriate water attire and water shoes for your safety. Bring along sunscreen, a hat, and water.

NOTE: TRANSPORTATION WILL NOT BE PROVIDED. Please coordinate your own transportation to Leesport for the start AND the return to Leesport to get your car following the event.
