Great Adirondack Boat Race slated for May 8 in Long Lake

On Sunday, May 8, the men’s rowing teams from St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY and Union College in Schenectady, NY will vie for the Great Adirondack Cup at the Long Lake Town Beach located at 1258 Main Street, State Route 30 in Long Lake, NY. This will be the fifth match-up between these two crew teams in Long Lake, having taken off one year in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The annual Great Adirondack Boat Race is tentatively slated to kick off from the Long Lake Town Beach between 9 and 10 a.m., depending on weather conditions. (The race could start earlier if needed due to weather and wind, and the start time of the race is subject to change without notice.)

The area between Helms Aero Service and the Town Beach restrooms will be reserved for parking for team trailers and shells starting on Saturday, May 7 through Sunday, May 8 . The racing event is free and open to the public. Parking for spectators will be available along State Route 30, Main Street (on the Jennings Park Pond side of the road) with additional spectator parking available at the Long Lake Central School.
