Exciting progress is happening on the Circuit Trails! The much-anticipated Manayunk Bridge Trail will OPEN creating a connection between the Cynwyd Heritage Trail (Lower Merion) and the Schuylkill River Trail (Philadelphia). Be among the first to explore this thrilling new trail connection.
On October 31, Schuylkill River Towns is hosting a celebration that will bring Action Team members, their friends, and family, down the trail from their communities to converge on the new Manayunk Bridge Trail. This event will commemorate the trail's completion as well as celebrate the new connection being made to towns all the way upriver. Runners and cyclists are invited to join us on the trail from Spring Mill to Lower Merion. Once we cross the brand new bridge trail, we'll celebrate with a catered picnic! Pre-registration required.
Meet at Riverbend Cycles at 10 AM
Runners leave for Manayunk at 11 AM
Cyclists leave for Manayunk at 11:30 AM
Picnic in Lower Merion will begin at noon
If you are interested in just part of the celebration - running, cycling, or picnicing, there are special registration options for you. Join us for one part or the whole event. Are you interested in celebrating but don't want to run or bike? Join us as a volunteer! We need people to help set up and help guide runners and cyclists to the new trail.
