The Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor has announced the 2023 Canalway Challenge, a free program welcoming people of all ages and abilities to set a personal mileage goal and then walk, run, cycle, or paddle along the NYS Canal System to achieve it and receive recognition and rewards, is now underway.
Participants can choose from a range of mileage options, including 15 miles, 90 miles, 180 miles, and 360 miles. A 1st Mile Challenge is open to people with mobility challenges.
Now in its 5th year, Canalway Challenge participants from 28 U.S. states and four countries have logged nearly one million miles along New York’s canals and Canalway Trail to date.
Registration is open to individuals, organizations, and teams. People can complete the Challenge in one big trip or many small ones from May 1st through the end of October. Upon completion, participants receive a mileage sticker, magnet and, new for 2023, set of four commemorative postcards.
