Take on the full length of the C&O Canal NHP! Divide your challenge into sections and bike, run, or walk at your own pace. Enjoy a multi-day exploration of the Park, and take time to visit Canal Towns along the way.
Establish your own starting and end points, and stretch yourself to take on 50 miles of the C&O Canal NHP in one or more days! 50 miles is no easy feat, so we recommend frequent pit stops to keep hydrated and enjoy the scenery.
25 miles is just under a full marathon! Choose a section of the Park for a day of trail running. Then, enjoy cool-down time among the trees and wildlife, and give yourself a pat on the back – you just ran 25 miles!
Customize your Challenge!
You can create your own challenge – a 5K, a 10-mile trek, you name it! Complete your challenge however and wherever you like. We just ask that you soak in the scenery and get moving!
