The culmination of our season!
This fall classic is a magnet for East Coast teams looking to take part in high-quality racing while enjoying nature’s beautiful backdrop. Crews from the New York and Philadelphia region return annually to create a vibrant athletes’ village, setting up team tents and elaborate picnics in the shady woods neighboring festival grounds.
