Ironman Lake Placid
Sunday, July 22nd (All day)
IRONMAN Lake Placid is a three-part challenge, and is the longest-running American event (aside from the IRONMAN World Championship)! The unique course includes a transition and finish line on the Olympic Speed skating Oval, a beautiful swim in Mirror Lake, a challenging bike ride through the Adirondacks, and an equally difficult run.
Distances and Courses:
This two-loop swim takes place in Mirror Lake, and is an excellent spectator course. Athletes must exit the water and run on the beach before entering the swim entrance for their second lap.
The two-loop bike course takes cyclists through the surrounding hills of the Adirondacks, each lap culminating with the 11-mile climb up "the notch" from Wilmington back to the transition area.
The two-loop run course brings runners through the city center four times. Runners pass the famed Olympic ski jumps, head down to the turnaround on River Road, and then back up to the turnaround on the shores of Mirror Lake.
