This Adirondack village will host its third “6er” event ever; the Saranac Lake 6er Relay, a team relay race, on Saturday, October 14, 2017 beginning and ending at Berkeley Green (corner of Main & Broadway).
This relay event follows, by four years, the initial 6er race on May 25, 2013, and the Winter 6er Race on December 21, 2013.
Each team will consist of six members who will, individually, ascend and descend one of the six peaks beginning with a shotgun start at 6 AM from Berkeley Green (in the center of the village’s downtown). A team member will ascend their team’s initial peak and then descend to hand-off a punch card to a team-member at the trailhead, with the next team member proceeding to the subsequent trail head to ascend and descend the next mountain and hand-off to another team member until all six peaks are completed.
Besides the overall Championship award, six other honors will also be bestowed:
The Youngest Team;
The Oldest Team;
The Spirit Award;
The team from Farthest Away;
The First High School Team to finish, and;
The First Collegiate Team to finish.
Qualifying details for each category, event rules as well as a relay race application may be downloaded online at www.saranaclake6er.com.
The official recording of finishers will end at 6 PM with a honor system recording thereafter. The event concludes 6 AM the next morning, October 15 (24 Hours from the start).
An award ceremony will be held on Saturday, October 14, just after the 6 PM official recording close in Berkeley Green (matter if all teams have arrived and finished or not).
