The Pines Motel, located on 214 County Rte 152 in Sacandaga Park, has offered a special discount to our race entrants. All of their rooms have been reduced to $75 per night (plus tax) for our race weekend. It is situated on a portion of the race route and is approximately 1.5 miles from the start/finish line in Northville. Some of the rooms have 2 beds, and some have just 1. All are non-smoking rooms. The motel is just an easy 2 minute walk from the Sport Island Pub, which serves lunch and dinner to the public, and also offers a beautiful view of the lake. The motel is under new management and is currently operating under reduced hours due to the wintertime, but they will take reservations. Their telephone number is: 518-863-4644, and you can find them on their new Facebook page listed as "Pines Motel-Sacandaga". Be sure to mention that you are participating in our event to get the proper discounted rate.

This has helped us to delay our scheduled fee increase until March 1st. On that date, registration will cost $70 plus processing charges. Be sure to let your friends and family members know if they have expressed interest in running our event!! Registration will end when 500 people are entered or on April 25th, whichever comes first.
