Marathon Trip Details
Marathon trips depart from our Adventure Center early Sunday morning on dam release weekends. You can camp overnight at our Adventure Center in the Poconos so you’ll have a short walk to check-in after waking up refreshed from a delightful night out under the stars.
A very hearty breakfast is recommended prior to departing for your big day out. Check out our delicious breakfast buffet menu and reserve it in advance so you can fuel up prior to getting on the shuttle to the river. Be certain that everyone in your party is in good shape, well rested, well‑fed, and up to the challenge.
At the end of your big day out, we shuttle your raft group from Glen Onoko near Jim Thorpe, PA back to our Adventure Center and Campground, where you can shower, change, and view your souvenir rafting photos. Be sure to purchase and wear with pride, an “I survived the Lehigh Marathon” T‑shirt!
Times and rapids can vary based on weather and water conditions.
