The Whitin Community Center plays host to a wide variety of events throughout the year, including both fundraising events to benefit the WCC, and FREE events to benefit the community at large.

Greenway Challenge

Save the date for this year’s 2019 UniBank Greenway Challenge, the popular multi-segment competition now in its 19th year. Registration begins July 1st! The event will be held on Saturday, September 28 and will feature multiple challenging segments which will take participants from the start line in Massachusetts through the Blackstone Valley to the finish line in Rhode Island over 50 miles later. There will be running, paddling, street bike, and mountain bike segments. Teams can compete in the following categories:  Individual Participant (Male or Female), 2-4 and 3-4 Person Team (Male, Female & Co-Ed), 3-4 Person Team (Male, Female & Co-Ed), and 5-8 Person Team (Male, Female, Co-Ed & Corporate).

The mission of the UniBank Greenway Challenge is to promote the recreational quality of life in the Blackstone River Valley. A program of the Whitin Community Center, presented by UniBank and supported by other partner organizations, the Greenway Challenge supports the development of new programs, purchase of additional equipment, and facility renovations for the members and guests of the Whitin Community Center (WCC). The WCC is a 501(c)(3) organization committed to enhancing the health and well-being of individuals and families and to building a strong community in the Blackstone Valley.

Each year, the Greenway Challenge athletes run, paddle and bike on a course designed to bring you through one of the most beautiful and historic regions of New England, the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor located between Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

This annual race is one of New England’s premier adventure races.

All participants can register on-line at beginning July 1st. Early Bird pricing ends August 15th! For any questions regarding participation please contact the Greenway Challenge at or 508.234.8184 ext 132 for more information.
