Catawba Riverkeeper and fitness business host adventure race in 2022

Catawba Riverkeeper plans to get the community active outdoors by holding a countywide adventure race next year.

“We’re excited to get people outside because they really start caring about the environment more after they attend these events,” said Catawba Riverkeeper Executive Director John Searby.

The nonprofit prioritizes maintaining the health of the South Fork River through educating the community with cleanup activities, providing outdoor events and services and more.

The multisport adventure race called The South Fork Sampler will be co-hosted by the Human Power Movement and will consist of three races involving biking, kayaking and running.

“Everything we do goes into protecting the South Fork River so when you support events or buy from us, it goes back into water sampling for water quality,” Searby said.
