The Saranac Lake 6er Relay is a team relay race. Each team will consist of six members who will, individually, ascend and descend one of the six peaks beginning with a shotgun start at 6:00 a.m. from Berkeley Green. 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.
The official recording of finishers will end at 6:00 p.m. with an "honor system" recording thereafter.
The event officially concludes 6:00 a.m. on October 20, 24-hours from the start.
An award ceremony will be held on Saturday, October 19 at 6:00 p.m. in the Cape Air Office, 5 Broadway, Saranac Lake, NY.
