Trip Log, East Coast River Relay

We loved celebrating our 25th birthday with so many new friends!

For nine weeks, we visited communities all along the East Coast Greenway and celebrated healthy watersheds, active living, and local culture. Thanks to everyone who joined us along the way: sponsors, partners, participants. Watch this space for fun looks back at the East Coast River Relay over the 3,000-mile journey.
