It worked great this year so - If you want to rack your bike on Friday night - the day before the race - you may do so between 5 - 7 pm. We will have overnight security to watch the bikes. This will allow you to relax and save some time on race morning...
Sign up as an individual under the NECTC category.

Parking – Race Day
The county is adjusting the flow of West Brook Road this spring, but the plan is for a parking lot to be created along the section of West Brook Road that used to run away from the lake. This will be metered parking. There will be no parking along the other portion of the West Brook Road as that will now be 2-way traffic. There will also be parking available at Million Dollar Beach parking lot and at the Village of Lake George parking - both on Beach Road. As we things progress, we will update the information and pass along.
Race Day Packet Pick-up

You can pick up your chips at the Score-This timing table. Remember to bring your running bib to get it scanned when you pick up your chip. Score-This will be providing timing for the event. If you have your own neoprene band for the chip you may wear. You can also use your own timing chip if you have it – please bring it to the scoring table. Your timing chips will need to be retrieved at the finish line. Please be patient or help us remove the chips after you cross the line…

Spectator parking is located all over Lake George. If you have family and friends coming to watch the race, there are plenty of opportunities for them to see you.
NO SPRAY PAINT ON THE ROADS PLEASE!!!
Spectators are welcome to watch the swim start from anywhere along the shore. Million Dollar Beach will be open for swimming. Please be patient with us in allowing spectators to move across Beach Road. Our number one priority is safety for both race participants and specators.
