INFO FROM THE IRONMAN WEBSITE
Another world class event comes to the Adirondacks.
An iconic North American triathlon for decades, Lake Placid offers the ultimate IRONMAN family vacation. Lake Placid has the amenities of a large city and the convenience of a small town, offering high-end restaurants, shopping and world-class accommodations. It boasts history, approachable charm and an abundance of on-course personality.
Located in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains, it’s a gorgeous and family-friendly event every athlete should put on their bucket list. Having hosted two Olympic Games (1932 and 1980), this charming town knows how to deliver a world-class athletic event. It’s also the home of one of the most challenging IRONMAN courses with its famous Adirondack climbs.
At this event, athletes will be treated to a course that’s identical to the full-distance race, but each discipline will be one single loop of the course. Athletes will begin with a one-loop swim in clear Mirror Lake, with the famous sight line at the bottom of the lake to guide them. Transitioning in the Olympic Speed Skating Oval to the bike, the rolling mountain views provide a scenic backdrop to the one-loop, 56-mile ride. Back at the oval, athletes will begin their 13.1-mile run through town and around the lake.
IRONMAN 70.3 Lake Placid will offer 35 slots to the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.
