ROCHESTER — On Sunday, May 1, six teams and five individuals participated in the Disastour Race held in Rochester. The annual fundraising event for Rochester Area Sports Trail Alliance (RASTA) was a triathlon event challenging competitors to bike, paddle and run. It began at Rochester’s Main St. Park. Bikers set off on an 800-foot, 11-mile climb on dirt roads into Rochester’s Hollow, ending with a searing downhill to the village of Hancock. There, the competitors transitioned to a water craft of their choice (kayak, canoe, or SUP boards) for a 4-mile paddle downstream on the White River back to Rochester where the final stage was a 3-mile field run to a finish that welcomed the drenched contestants and volunteers to a wood-fired oven pizza and Lawson’s Finest brews.
