Registration now open for inaugural swim/kayak/bike/run/competition
Indian Lake, NY – The Adirondack village of Indian Lake will be the first venue in the United States to host a quadrathalon. The “Do the Q” event on June 16th consists of a 1/2 mile swim, four mile kayak paddle, 30k bike ride, and a 10k run, in accordance with World Quadrathalon Federation guidelines.
Registration is limited to 50 participants and racers will compete in all events (no relay teams.)
The event is presented by the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce and America’s Quadrathlon Association. The routes for each leg are still being established, but all will be in Indian Lake, said Len Carbonara, vice president of the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce.
Quadrathalons are increasing in popularity in Europe, but this will be the first in the U.S.
“We wanted to launch this event in Indian Lake and wanted to provide triathletes a different race experience,” Carbonara said. “Ironman and other triathlons are highly popular and we are optimistic this event will attract competitors looking for a new event.”
