This year’s Ironman Lake Placid will take place Sunday, July 28.
The website lists it as “one of the most challenging Ironman courses with its famous Adirondack climbs.
“Athletes begin with a two-loop swim in clear Mirror Lake, with the famous sight line lining the bottom of the lake.
“Transitioning in the Olympic Speed Skating Oval to the bike, the rolling mountain views provide a scenic backdrop.
“Two loops of 56 miles bring competitors back to the oval once again, where they begin their 26.2-mile run through the town and around the lake.”
