ADK Citizens Challenge Race Series

Citizens Challenge Races

We are upon the third year of our 1k, 3k, 6.25k & 12.5k challenge ski race to be held Saturday March 16th.  This event is designed for those who are new to racing or experienced skiers looking for a community event that is fun.  Taking place on a 6.25K course that is slightly challenging, but relatively flat, you will be rewarded with comradery, pristine conditions and all 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.

The ADK Citizen Challenge Series is a monthly race series for all ages and abilities.  This afternoon series are the same Saturdays as the “Community Club Days” for the youth ski clubs and encourage community club, family and individual participation.  It will be a wonderful day of celebrating our regional Nordic culture with a fun event, specials at the venue, music at Josie’s and a party atmosphere.
