Trail runners and off-road cyclists are invited to participate in the inaugural ADK 80K, an endurance racing event in Lake Placid on Labor Day Weekend, Aug. 31 to Sept. 1, starting at 8 a.m.

The races cover 80 kilometers in a figure-eight design and feature $8,000 in prizes in eight categories.

The weekend consists of two events, both taking place on the Mount Van Hoevenberg trail system used in the 1980 Olympic Winter Games biathlon and cross-country ski races.

The ADK 80K begins with a trail run on Saturday, followed by Sunday’s mountain bike race with a cyclocross division. Both races consist of four 20-kilometer loops with aid stations every 5 kilometers. Food, refreshments and live music are planned.

Trail runners and cyclists can race solo or in two- or four-person teams.

The weekend also includes a mini-trail run Saturday and mountain bike race for kids beginning at 4 p.m. Sunday. Both mini-races cover 8 kilometers.

Cyclists can ride mountain bikes or cyclocross bikes. Registration is $80 per person. For more information, go to highpeaks, or call Brian at High Peaks Cyclery at 518-523-3764.
