10 Apr Indian Lake to host first-ever U.S. quadrathlon on June 16
Registration now open for inaugural bike/swim/run/kayak competition
Indian Lake, NY — The Adirondack village of Indian Lake will be the first venue in the United States to host a quadrathlon, scheduled for June 16. The “Do the Q” event consists of a half-mile swim, 4-mile kayak paddle, 30K bike ride and a 10K run, in accordance with World Quadrathlon Federation guidelines.
Registration is limited to 50 participants and racers will compete in all events (no relay teams).
The event is presented by the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce and America’s Quadrathlon Association. The routes for each leg are still being established, but all will be in the Indian Lake region, said Len Carbonara, vice president of the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce.
Quadrathlons are increasing in popularity in Europe, but this will be the first in the U.S.
“We wanted to launch this event in Indian Lake and wanted to provide triathletes a different race experience,” Carbonara said. “Ironman and other triathlons are highly popular and we are optimistic this event will attract competitors looking for a new event in a new location.”
Those interested in competing can sign up by contacting the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce at 518-648-5112.
