Lake Placid Trail Challenge

Details

Mt Van Hoevenberg is excited for you to join us for our inaugural Spartan Race! This 21K course is one of the most unique trail runs, taking you through the historic Mt Van Hoevenberg site, used for the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Winter Games. You’ll begin the race by taking the path less traveled, cresting the hill that set the backdrop for the biathlon competition in the 1980 Olympics. Through conifer stands and birch forests, on winding paths with views of Cascade Mountain, you’ll reach the World Cup trails with stunning vistas of Whiteface and Pitchoff Mountain before climbing to the top of the 1932 Olympic Bobsled track. Once there, you will experience the twist and turns as you run IN the track to the top of our current World Championship sliding track, where current World Cup athletes vie for medals in bobsled, skeleton, and luge. From this historic start area, you can take in the views of the surrounding area for miles.
