Ticonderoga Athlete Guide

Formerly the Hague Endurance Festival, we would like to introduce the Ticonderoga Triathlon Festival. Only 5 miles north to Black Point Beach in Ticonderoga, NY.  This course is athlete friendly, safe and beautiful.  The same race layout with a few additions we think you will love.

Wilson Endurance Sports focuses on grassroots, athlete centered racing and produces 27 events across NY State.  Visit the website at www.CoachMarkWilson.com for a complete listing of events.

Sprint & Olympic

Start with a 750m swim in the crystal clear waters of Lake George. Then take a moderate hilly 12 mile bike ride followed by a 5K run on the scenery rich courses hugging the shore lines of the lake.  The Olympic participants will complete 2 loops of each course. 

Participants in the Aqua Bike competition will complete the event after the bike. Finish times are recorded as participants cross the timing mat as they enter transition.  Finishers can make their way to the Finish Line for their race medals.  There are no relay team entries for the AquaBike.

Swim Course: The swim is a 750m course in the clean, clear waters of Lake George. Swim waves start three minutes apart with a beach start. The swim is a counter-clockwise triangular course.  The Olympic triathletes will exit the water and return to do the same loop.

Bike Course: Bike a beautiful loop with one short bump but mostly flat”ish” course measuring 12 miles. Left out of transition onto Black Point Road, bear right on to The Portage, left onto Alexandria Avenue, turnaround point on Alexandria at Kennedy Drive staying on Alexandria,  right onto Baldwin Road, right onto Pine Spring Park Road with a loop at the end staying to your right and back to Baldwin Road with a right hand turn, course turnaround with a left onto Delano Point Road and back onto Baldwin Road, right hand turn onto Alexandria Avenue, right onto Black Point Road, right into Transition at the park or a turnaround loop on Black Point Road to complete lap 2 for the Olympic race. 

Run Course: The 5K run course takes place completely in a quiet neighborhood. From Transition, turn right onto Black Point Way down to the turnaround and back, a left hand turn back into the park, follow the signs along the beach area and out to Tiroga Beach Road with a left hand turn up the hill staying right at the Y, complete the loop and head back to the park.  Finish Line will be next to the beach area.  Olympic athletes will follow the signs to complete loop 2 of the course. 

The Sprint & Olympic Triathlon can be entered as a relay team of 2 or 3 members; each completing 1-2 of the event legs. Team members exchange the timing chip inside the transition area.
