Get ready for The Champlain Bridge Run
CROWN POINT, N.Y.?—?The sixth annual New York/Vermont 5K Champlain Bridge Run, sponsored by the Ticonderoga-based LaChute Road Runners Club, will be contested Saturday, May 20, at 10 a.m. Nearly 70 runners took part in the 2016 New York/Vermont 5K Champlain Bridge Run.
The race will again begin at the Samuel de Champlain Lighthouse in the New York state campsite and follow a pedestrian path along the Lake Champlain shore, under the bridge, to the Crown Point Historic Site. The race will finish near the historic site museum in front of the bridge. The course is mostly grass and dirt with some asphalt.
“It’s a great course,” said 2016 race winner Matt Karkoski. “The scenery is absolutely beautiful, there are no traffic issues and the course is a lot of fun. I love this course.”
Awards will be presented the top overall man and woman as well as to the top three finishers in various age groups.
Proceeds from the race will support the Crown Point Central School Backpack Program, which helps alleviate child hunger by discreetly providing children with backpacks full of nutritious and easy-to-prepare food on Friday afternoons so they have food to eat throughout the weekend.
Packet pick up and day of race registration will be 8:30-9:45 a.m. on the grounds of the British fort ruins within the Crown Point State Historic Site.
