“The river we call Delaware, sometimes a friend, sometimes a fury, cuts between the Garden and the Keystone with an immortal rush. Born before its namesake, it has mountain siblings and, unburdened by age, will remain long after us.

But marvel at the current and you’ll realize it can only stare back; it is only a witness to adventure. Like the Delaware, we flow in the present, but while the river takes the time, we take the moments. The revolutions, the romances, the rallies -- they’re ours. And so are the races.

Can we outpace these gallons that gallop from the Catskills to Cape May? The answer is less important than the effort. We can and should still try because it is here, and so are we. How grateful I am to test the impossibility.

The river runs, let’s run with it.”

-M. Patrick Murray

NEW for 2024→2025
