Ironman Lake Placid is the premier event for elite triathletes. Outside of the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, at Lake Placid's inception in 1999 it was the only other Ironman event in the United States. Now one of several Ironman events it still holds the distinction of the longest running - and for good reason. This year's race takes place on Sunday, July 27th.
Two years ago I had what I believed was the bright idea that Lake Placid needed an historic walking tour map. Little did I know that I would be the designer or that it would be so well received! At the time I was a trustee on the Lake Placid North Elba Historical Society board of directors. I have since left the board due to time limitations, but I wanted to see the project through to completion so I stayed on task until publication in May of this year. It’s been an incredibly rewarding and enlightening project.
Hold onto your hats folks! July is about to explode with events in Lake Placid, as it does every year. This year's events lineup will not disappoint, once again.
As the weather becomes more and more summer-like in Lake Placid, the shift of focus moves outdoors for events and all kinds of activities. Cultural events are still on the calendars at indoor venues as well.
From arts to action sports, Spring is filled with events to keep everyone happy this year.
