Am heading there for the olympic distance - exactly a month out from today. First time to the race and the area in general. Heard its pretty scenic, and the race is low key and laid back

Anyone else going too? or done it in the past years

Did the Lake George half ironman distance two years ago. It's a really low key and fun race. I remember they had smoothies at the finish line for all the athletes. It's a really fun race. Can't make it up there this year, but have a blast! Here's my race report from then, in case you wanted to read something about the race. I remember the bike course was measured long.

I'm signed up again this year, and it's a FANTASTIC race. There are a few waves during the swim, since the morning wind comes across the lake, but the water is very clean and a good temp. Wetsuits have been allowed each time I've done it. The bike course has a couple of decent climbs but nothing awful. The run is a double loop that includes two relatively steep hills, but downhill and flat to the finish. VERY scenic. I love this course! And the race is excellently organized. A+++

did the olympic two years ago. had a great time. the lake is beautiful. will probably be one of your favorite places to swim.

the area is very nice as well. just be careful when eating out. the prices are a little high over there.

Just finished a practice ride for the Olympic race.

As a slow, newbie cyclist I was very intimidated by the bike elevation profile.
However I'm relieved to know that the course really wasn't hard at all. It seemed like most of the course was downhill. There is a good sized hill about half way through and the last third has a couple hilly sections but overall nothing to worry about.

Most surprising to me was the first third of the course being on a bike/foot path through the woods. Very scenic and fun.


Good luck and have fun folks!

I did it in 2007, and my husband did the swim the other day. It was a beautiful day!

It was a very enjoyable race

Completed the half and took the W for the 30-34 AG! First ever win of a half iron. Very happy to say the least!

The triathlon made a lot of sense as I could fit the training around early mornings and other times that wouldn't eat too much into my family time. Things never go completely to plan do they?

I am running Boston in April and Ironman Lake Placid is in July. I have been told that it is ambitious to think about doing an IM so close to a marathon due to the recovery time. Any suggestions?

I quickly browsed an article in Men's Health that talked about doing a triathlon, and how it wasn't really that hard. With a "tsk!" I quickly turned the page while thinking, "Yeah, right!"

Both the Lake Triathlon Shoe CX210TRI and the Lake Road Shoe CX225 offer distinct advantages. I tested both shoes and found them to be extremely comfortable, good looking and durable.

If you are calm while everyone around you is losing it, you probably don’t know what the hell is going on.
