The Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) is set to host its second Amy’s Adventure Race for the Lake (Amy’s Race) at Amy’s Park in North Bolton on Saturday, September 29. The race course, which is 4.5 miles/7.2 kilometers in length, is entirely off-road, and goes over brooks, up hills and through the scenic marshes of the 500-acre preserve.
All ages are welcome to compete, and friends and family are encouraged to attend to cheer on the competitors. Registrations for the race can be made online for $25 per person or the morning of the race for $30 (registration opens at 7 am).
The first 50 people to register will receive a custom tie-died bandana printed with the new Amy’s Race logo, designed by committee members Harry Caldwell and Sydnie Wells. In addition, every runner who completes the race will receive a commemorative etched wooden medal in the shape of a maple leaf, designed, created and donated by Adirondack Etching.
The race will begin at 9 am, with hand-timing from Underdog Race Timing, and will be followed by a prize ceremony and celebration at the trailhead at 10:15 am. Winners of the race will receive hydration packs from Salomon and pints of local maple syrup from Up Yonda Farm Environmental Education Center. Baked goodies from Tops Friendly Markets, granola bars from CLIF Bar and beer tastings from Bolton Landing Brewing Company will be available until the last runner crosses the finish line.
An after-party will be held at Bolton Landing Brewing Company starting at 11 am and will feature food and drinks for purchase, half-price food for all runners, Amy’s Race merchandise for sale, and a raffle. Raffle prizes include two pairs of trail running sneakers from Salomon, a gift basket from Silverwood Home & Gallery, and gift cards to Cantina Saratoga and The Wind Chill Factory (must be present to win). The Race and after-party are open to all ages and are open to those that are not participating in the running of the race.
