Lake George, NY (July 13, 2022) Alpha Win is proud to announce some exciting new updates to the annual Lake George Triathlon Festival. Since acquiring the event in 2021, Alpha Win has been working on some new features to continue to make the race an exciting and safe experience for athletes.
These changes are highlighted by a new run course for Sunday’s Sprint and Olympic distance races. This will provide athletes a chance to run alongside the lake and through Lake George Village next to hundreds of spectators. Additionally, for the swim, all distances will now be starting at Million Dollar Beach. Athletes who race will enjoy a variety of new swag, including race belts, swim caps, and Lake George Triathlon jackets.
The Lake George Triathlon Festival is now the first ever USAT-sanctioned New York State Championship event. On Sunday, September 4th, Age Group and High School Athletes will have a chance to compete to win the NYS championship in their respective age group. The top five finishers in each age group will qualify for USAT Nationals. The race will also remain a sanctioned North East Collegiate Triathlon Conference (NECTC) event.
