Pond Sprint & Pond Hike

October 11, 2015

On October 11, 2015, is the Pond Sprint, a 13-mile race around Long Pond beginning at Pok-O-MacCready Camps, Reber Rd., in Willsboro. The course follows portions of the famed Patch Sprint route, climbing Sugarloaf and Rattlesnake mountains. The race starts and ends at Pok-O-MacCready Camps.

There will also be a 4-1/4 mile “pond hike” for those who want to participate but don’t want to make the 13-mile run.

Entry fee will be $50 for the Pond Sprint; $30 for the Pond Hike; no charge for volunteers.  All participants will be provided on-course aid supplies, and a post race picnic. The first 15 Pond Sprint racers, and first five volunteers will receive an event t-shirt; additional shirts may be available for sale. See the course here.

All proceeds from this event will be divided evenly between the Adirondack Scholarship Foundation and the CATS Long Pond Conservancy Program.
