Registration is Open for Lake George adventure race

Participants in the 2022 Amy’s Race from the Glens Falls Runners Club.

Bolton Landing, NY – Registration is open for the Lake George Land Conservancy’s (LGLC) 7th annual Amy’s Adventure Race for the Lake, taking place Saturday, September 30, 2023. The race is a 4.5-mile trail run at Amy’s Park in Bolton, NY. Registration is available online at https://lglc.org/amys-race.

Amy’s Park offers challenging and rugged terrain amidst ponds, marshes, and forests. A virtual option is also available, so athletes can run the race at Amy’s Park or from wherever they choose on September 30th, as long as it’s 4.5 miles.

An after-party will be held at the Bolton Landing Brewing Company’s Oktoberfest. Open to all race participants and members of the community, the after-party will have refreshments and a basket raffle. All proceeds from the race and the raffle will go to the LGLC’s Indian Brook & Northwest Bay Conservation Initiative, an ongoing effort by the LGLC to conserve lands in a highly sensitive region of the Lake George watershed.

Race registration is $30 until Sept. 1, with the option to purchase an Amy’s Race t-shirt for an additional $10. Registration will then stay open until Sept. 29 at an increased registration fee of $40 (not including the T-shirt). Registration also includes one raffle ticket for the after-party raffle. Participants, family, and friends also can buy Amy’s Race t-shirts and hooded sweatshirts at the after-party and through the race’s online store.

This year, participants have the option to create individual and team fundraisers, with the highest individual and team fundraiser each receiving a prize.

Amy’s Race was spearheaded in 2017 by the LGLC’s Next Generation (NextGen) Committee, a group of young professionals committed to bringing awareness to LGLC’s mission by organizing innovative events geared towards engaging communities around the lake.

Created to bring attention to the LGLC’s mission of protecting the land that protects the lake, the race also directly demonstrated the holistic benefits of conserving natural resources while also providing recreational opportunities.
