Join Us for a Win-Win!

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Canalway Challenge Event Partner! We are seeking to promote recreational events and tours on the NYS Canal System and Canalway Trail that involve running, cycling, and paddling so that we can help people find fun ways to achieve their Canalway Challenge mileage.

In turn, we want the Canalway Challenge to be an exciting new tool that you can use to achieve your goals and increase your event participation. Working together, we can reach broad audiences, generate excitement, and maximize the benefits of this initiative for all.

Fill out the application below.

We'll review it and, if approved, send you sample language and logos to kick start your outreach.

  • Events must take place on the Canalway Trail or NYS Canal System.
  • There is no fee to become an official Canalway Challenge event.
  • Events must be open to the public.
  • You retain control over all decisions regarding your event.
