This triathlon-inspired endurance event offers a unique opportunity to experience the wonder of the Poconos and the Delaware River from different vantage points while adding an element of friendly competition.   

Due to mandated restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 event has been canceled. We plan to try again in the spring of 2021. The date is TBD. Click here to join our our email list to stay up-to-date on details about the 2021 Delaware River Fly Tri.
