Wakely Dam Ultra Marathon

The Wakely Dam Ultra is a 55K ultra marathon through the Adirondack Park wilderness of New York State. It takes place along a remote section of the Northville Placid Trail between Piseco Lake and the Wakely Dam. The race is totally self supported, all runners will provide their own aid. It is a technical trail race with 3300 feet of total elevation gain. There are no cross roads, when you enter at the Wakely Dam there are only two ways out; emerge at the Piseco Airport or return from whence you came. Adding your name to the list of those who have conquered Wakely will take a fair amount of fitness, planning, toughness, and maybe even a little bit of luck.

The 2021 registration fee is $100.00. Every participant will receive: transportation to the start line on race morning, race shirt, two meals, and a pre-race pasta party and a post- race pasta party for the runners and their families. And more!
