INTRO

One of the most popular triathlons of all time, the IRONMAN Lake Placid is an iconic race which sells out early every year.  The race features a swim in the crystal clear waters of Mirror Lake, a beautiful bike course through the Adirondacks, and a stay in a historic Olympic town.  This year Lake Placid is the TriClub North American Championship.
