Join MNC for a race trip to the popular Climb to the Castle rollerski race in beautiful Lake Placid, NY! It might not be the traditional way to climb a mountain, but this is one way to tackle an Adirondack 46’er!
The race begins early in the morning on Sunday, September 24th. For this event, MNC will offer a race trip that departs the day prior to make a mini training camp out of the weekend.
We will depart from the Buffalo Wild Wings/Price Chopper parking lot at 1pm on Saturday the 23rd. Once in Lake Placid, we’ll go for a rollerski on the scenic River Road near the ski jumps. We’ll then make ourselves at home at the High Peaks Basecamp Lodge right in the heart of town. We’ll have a study-hall period for schoolwork, and a session in the yoga studio at the neighboring High Peaks Cyclery. With a large kitchen in the house, we’ll make a team dinner and get ready to race the next day!
On race day we’ll have the luxury of waking up at a normal hour (vs the earliest ferry from VT) and making a hearty breakfast before competing in the race. After the event, we’ll have lunch in town and go for a trail run or mountain bike ride on some nearby trails before heading back to VT.
Registration for this trip includes lodging, meals, transportation, and support at our 2 training sessions outside the race.
