740 Miles in One Day

3rd Annual 740 Miles in One Day
Saturday, July 28, 2012

REGISTER HERE: Join us for this trail-wide event. Be a part of paddling a collective 740 miles in a single day (or a lot more than that!) and you might win a personalized Carlisle paddle.

Quick Reference:  NFCT Rivers, Lakes, and Streams

Here's how it works:

  • On July 28, paddlers at locations along the entire length of the Trail will hop into their canoes or kayaks, paddle rafts or more, and paddle for a mile, 10 miles, 17.2 miles...whatever length works for you.  
  • Register your name, email address of you and your paddling companions and the Trail section you paddled by sending it in to 740@northernforestcanoetrail.org. Deadline for reporting will be close of business on Wednesday, August 1.
    With each name you register, the greater your chance of winning.
  • You can also upload imagery from your day.  Upload photos here, and videos here.

Track Your Miles

Interested paddlers should REGISTER so we can set ourselves up for success, and so we know how many of you are out there! We encourage you to gather a group of friends and family (10 people paddling 10 miles = 100 miles, right?) so that all miles paddled are fun miles!  Make a day of it-rent a boat from one the many great outfitters and guides along the Trail.  How about a shuttle?  Supporting Trailside business is what this day is all about.

Email your name and email address and the names and email addresses of your paddling companions (no children, please) along with the section of the trail and the miles paddled to 740@northernforestcanoetrail.org for your chance to win a personalized Carlisle paddle.
