NCPR Home Running the Northville-Lake Placid Trail
This month's edition of the Adirondack Sports & Fitness newspaper includes a column by Vermont photographer Tim Seaver. Seaver describes his experience this summer running the entire length of the Northville-Placid trail. The 122-mile super-marathon took 37 hours and 31 minutes. That sets a new record for the trail. The only other person known to have run the entire route was Richard Denker, a Boy Scout from Galway, who made the journey in 1973. Hikers often take ten days or more to complete the route. Tim Seaver told Brian Mann that the final seven hours of his run were grueling. Email this story to a friend!
