About This Activity


The Chilli Challenge is the one that started it all. 

The original race in what would eventually become the River Towns Race Series, the ‘Chilli’ is a central PA classic.  Held at the Montour Preserve’s beautiful Lake Chillisquaque (our namesake), the Chilli combines biking some of the most scenic roads in Montour County with paddling the lake and running the lakeside trails.
