Lake Placid – Ironman

Logo - IRONMAN Lake Placid

IRONMAN Lake Placid is the longest-running American event aside from the IRONMAN World Championship Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

Located in the beautiful Adirondack mountains, Lake Placid Ironman is the quintessential Ironman for any triathlete.  This year my great friend Terryl will be realizing her dream by completing this amazing course.

Swim 3Having 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. Athletes begin with a two-loop swim in clear Mirror Lake, with the famous sight line lining the bottom of the lake.

Transitioning in the Olympic Speed Skating Oval to the bike, the rolling mountain views provide a scenic backdrop. Two loops of 56 miles bring competitors back to the Oval once again, where they begin their 26.2-mile run through the town and around the lake.
