Join us for the 14th Annual TOUR DE COAL!

The Tour de Coal is an annual 11-mile float trip from Tornado to St. Albans sponsored by the Coal River Group.

This event is a fundraiser that helps fund the CRG's river cleanups, restoration, and education activities.

Friday, June 15, 2018: Tour de Coal Pre-Registration Party kicks off at 4pm at the CRG River Center! Come out to Meadowood Park to register for the Tour de Coal, pick up your t-shirts, and attend our Beginner's Kayaking Workshop in Pettigrew Lake from 2-4pm. Pre-registration ends at 7:30pm.
