2009 Adirondack Canoe Classic, “The 90-miler” – September 11-13

Now that we’ve got my shiny new blue kayak home, I’ve got my eye on the Adirondack Canoe Classic at the end of the summer.  “The 90-miler” is a 3-day canoe/kayak race that starts in Old Forge and ends in Saranac Lake.  From what I hear, it’s grueling … but worth every minute.

Some teams take it seriously:

And some teams…don’t:

But I’m pretty sure everyone has a good time.

For those who are interested in participating, contact the race hotline at 518-891-2744 or Provide your name, mailing address and phone number and indicate you are interested in a 90-Miler entry form. Previous entrants will be mailed an entry form in mid-June. Entry forms are due by July 25th and if more than 250 applications (boats) are received, a weighted lottery system will be implemented.

Happy training!

    I’m a casualty of the weighted lottery system but would still like to do the race.
    Does anyone need a paddler? I completed the last two years in a single kayak.
