Course Info: Centered amidst the northern beauty of the Adirondack region, Lake Placid is a solid choice as host for the Ironman Lake Placid Triathlon. The Lake Placid course presents challenging sections on both the bike and run courses that gave last year's nearly 2,000 competitors a workout to remember. Famous champions include Thomas Hellriegel, Heather Fuhr, Melissa Spooner, Steve Larsen, and Cameron Widoff.
The course is nothing short of spectacular. The swim takes place in the pristine Mirror Lake.
The challenging bike course winds through the Adirondack Mountains, and is both scenic and tough - what more could a triathlete want?
The run is no picnic, either, and offers up some more great scenery, along with some more challenging hills.
Put it all together and you have the essence of Ironman ... a race that captures both the beauty and the challenges of the area, and the sport.
