September 19, 2015 - Rain or shine!

Walnut2Walnut is an ambitious combination of two fun events:
1) a 15-mile, two-river regatta 2) a challenging urban scavenger hunt

These are your rivers - connect with them and help our children take advantage of the opportunities for learning presented by a vibrant and diverse waterfront. Will you accept the challenge?


The human-powered regatta will take place on the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers. The race will begin at 9:30 a.m. with all boats leaving from the Schuylkill River at Walnut Street and ending at the Seaport Museum at Walnut Street on the Delaware.

Scavenger Hunt

The hunt will take place throughout the city of Philadelphia, starting at 11:00 a.m. from Walnut Street on the Schuylkill Banks and ending at the Seaport Museum on the Delaware River. Teams of 2 to 4 will race through the city solving and completing maritime-themed clues and challenges. 

Registration is OPEN!
