2021 Virtual Welty Rock River 5K

August 23, 2021 September 20, 2021

Let’s raise funds for Stateline environmental education by traveling the length of the Rock River (515 km/ 320 mi) virtually!

The Rock River (known as Sinnissippi by the Sauk and Fox nations) starts in east-central Wisconsin and flows southwest to the Quad City of Illinois and Iowa, where it joins the Mississippi River. It forms one of the borders of Big Hill Park, where Welty Environmental Center is located, and all our water activities occur in its watershed.

Choose a time and place from August 23rd to September 20th, and walk/run/bike/paddle/swim the length of a 5k (3.1 mi). Feel free to go longer (or shorter), whatever works for you! If you’d like to complete your distance along the Rock River itself, there are lots of options along The Rock River Trail.

Send us your distance and a photo (if you’d like) when you’re done, and we’ll post them weekly and keep track on a map of the Rock River.

A big Thank You to Beloit Even Start Family Literacy Program, Brennan Steil S.C., Brownfield Environmental, Collins and Henderson LLP, the Carroll Agency, Gilbank Construction, Teachers Credit Union, and Zeeland Farm Services for their sponsorship.
