Join us after the race for a community picnic hosted by the Camden Lyons and the Webber - Camden and Folwell Neighborhood Organizations. Free hotdogs, chips and lemonade for race participants. Then take a dip in the Webber Natural Swimming Pool, the first public swimming pool in North America to have a natural filtration system that uses plants in a nearby pond rather than chemicals to treat the water.
