Spartan Trail Lake Placid Challenge 50K/Half Marathon/10k
October 15 @ 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM$90 – $170
Classic trail running, no obstacles, many distances. Each race takes place on beautiful, rugged trails around the world. Spartan also hosts the Spartan Trail World Championship series, with some of trail running’s most iconic events and athletes.
Spartan has done a big jump into the trail running scene through Spartan Trail, creating and partnering with world class events for an outstanding experience.
From challenging, interesting and touristic aimed races for those who chose to defy themselves every day, to assembling a World Championship with the biggest prize purse in major events for Elite runners, growing the trail running community and sharing the soul of the sport is the main goal of our company.
Mt Van Hoevenberg is a massive nordic ski center with endless trails of all types. Single track, double track, flat, steep, and flowy, you’ll find it all here at the venue that hosted events for the 1980 Winter Olympics.
Racers will start and finish in the stadium that serves as the centerpiece to this winter sports complex, and their path will take them through dense forest and up steep climbs to the top of a bobsled track and beyond. Epic views await at the summit, as does a test of the legs for the long descent to the finish.
