    Dear Racers & Volunteers

    The 2010 North Country Triathlon is here! Whether you are racing, volunteering, or

    cheering we are ready for you. Everyone involved with hosting this race has deep

    roots in the Hague area of the Adirondack mountains and we love showing off the

    beauty and challenging terrain of our corner of the world. After all, it gives each of

    us an excuse to be at Lake George too!

    Those who first settled these rugged Adirondack Mountains had strength, courage,

    and determination, the same qualities each of our triathletes bring to this event. As

    a racer I know well the commitment each person puts forth to prepare for a race

    as challenging as ours. We thank you for choosing our event and in return we at

    the NCT commit to providing an event that rewards your training and travel efforts

    with beautiful scenery, hospitality, and a course that wed like to race ourselves!

    We need more than racers to have an event though. The men and women that

    bring their talent to the NCT by volunteering are the real heart and soul of the

    event. They will be working to prepare the course and facilities for weeks before

    the race begins many of their shifts working at the race will outlast every racers

    time spent on the course. Racers, I have a challenge for you, try to thank every

    volunteer you see out there. Without their efforts we simply could not make this

    event happen. Give em a smile and a Thanks for being here every chance you

    get; they deserve it!

    As the race director for the 2nd year Ive carefully reviewed the comments from

    racers and volunteers and weve made some changes to this years event to

    maximize the safety of our racers, volunteers, and emergency personnel. Both bike

    routes have been tweaked, water stop locations optimized, and the post-race party

    has been moved to the event site to make sure all can share their race stories of

    the day!

    Thanks to our incredible network of sponsors and volunteers for another year of

    support, encouragement, and participation!

    John Hartley,

    Race Director
