USATF Adirondack LDR Grand Prix

USATF Adirondack Grand Prix series has historically been comprised of twelve races at distances ranging from the mile to the marathon and has consistently attracted top area athletes. Going into its 10th year, for the first time ever, the Long Distance Running Committee (LDR Committee) put out a bid application to all USATF Adirondack sanctioned road races to gauge interest in participating in the series. The LDR Committee then created three race slates from the bids that were received and invited USATF Adirondack Association members to vote on the slate of their choice.
