UPDATED JULY 16, 2020: Due to the social distancing restrictions associated with COVID-19, we have made the hard decision to cancel the 2020 West Penn Trail Triathlon. We are deeply saddened, but we will look forward to future triathlons. We hope that you enjoy the river and trails in your free time and we’ll see you again. Thank you for patience and understanding.
Join Conemaugh Valley Conservancy (CVC) in our mission to protect and restore the health and beauty of the Kiski-Conemaugh River Valley and to strengthen the connection between the land and it’s people. With your help, we’re breathing new life into forgotten railroads and neglected streams and rivers throughout South Western Pennsylvania.
We serve portions of Armstrong, Cambria, Indiana, Somerset, and Westmoreland counties.
