ADK Citizens Challenge Race Series

Citizens Challenge Races

The 3km, 6km and 12km races are designed for those who are new to racing or experienced skiers looking for a community event that is fun. With either the 3km course—slightly challenging, but relatively flat—or the 6km—which includes a couple of short but strenuous uphills—you will be rewarded with camaraderie, pristine conditions and all of the fun parts of a large race.   Any technique is welcome in this mass start event that is perfect for friends, couples or families who are looking for a healthy tradition. Surrounded by the Lake Placid Nordic Fest and winding on the Olympic Trails of Mt. Van Hoevenberg, this will be a great experience for all participants. Everyone who crosses the finish line will receive a finisher gift pint glass with one free beer or soda. There will also be complimentary post-race food. Awards will take place at Mt. Van Hoevenberg in the finish tent. Prizes will be awarded to the 1st place finisher in each age class.

*All Citizen's Challenge Races begin at 1:00 pm
