KYAH-X: Lake Placid

DATE: March 5th-8th, 2020

Winter Cross Training and Adventure Awaits

You may have swam in the lake, cycled on the roads, and run all over the town….but have you been to Lake Placid in the WINTER??? Lake Placid is the mecca of winter activities and it’s the perfect place for cross training winter fun. It is one of the few places on the GLOBE to have hosted not one but TWO winter Olympics. While it is no doubt beautiful in the summer, the winter is prime time. We want to bring that excitement to you!

This experience is NOT only for triathletes. It is for ANYONE who loves a good adventure and wants to be a part of an unforgettable experience. Spouses, significant others and friends are WELCOME. :)
