Choose a Goal
We suggest participants set a goal to hike, walk, run, or simply stroll for 153 minutes.
Why 153 minutes? Because the Hudson Estuary flows 153 miles both ways, from the Troy Dam to the Battery in NYC. Want a greater challenge? Choose 315 minutes. It's 315 miles from the river's source at Lake Tear of the Clouds on Mt. Marcy to the Battery in NYC. Want to choose your own goal? Pick a number that has personal meaning. Choose another river related number, 78 major tributaries, 173 native fish species, etc., it's up to you.
How to Join
To participate, register as an individual or join a team and pay the $15.30 entry fee + processing charge. Commit to hike, walk, run, or simply stroll, a combined 153 minutes, or time of your choice.
We encourage each individual raise additional funds. You may accept the suggested amounts of $153 for an individual or $1530 for a 10 person team, or choose your own goals.
