Imagine a journey undertaken on foot, bike and boat that starts in pristine wilderness at a hidden mountain lake, giving rise to one World’s great rivers. Then follow that river as it winds its way downstream, carving a course through a lush valley before finishing as a colossal waterway amidst the most famous icons in America in the hustle and bustle of New York City. This is Source to City – a multi-sport descent of the mighty Hudson River traversing all 300 miles of its course.
The river itself flows from a little-known lake in the High Peaks Wilderness area of the Adirondacks of Upstate New York and makes it way down the Hudson River Valley: A breath-taking tour-de-force of American beauty, steeped in culture and the very cradle of the Nation’s history. The river officially terminates at ‘mile 0’ at The Battery, at the very tip of Manhattan Island. Celebrate as you finish this challenge amid the skyscrapers of Wall Street and with the Statue of Liberty in clear view – a magical end to an incredible adventure.
Our challenge encompasses running and trekking, biking and kayaking. This is the ultimate mountain, river and road trip all combined into one helluva multi-sport adventure. Make no bones about it, this one does not pull any punches and this event is a seriously committing undertaking. But it is forged in true Rat Race-style: The objective is achievable to anyone who fronts up, trains hard and commits to the start line.
