5 Stars for Physical Activity and 10 cups of hot tea for braving the elements!
Saranac Lake kicked off a great local program this weekend to encourage getting out and being active in the Saranac Lake area. The 6er program challenges anyone who is willing to climb 6 not-quite-so-high peaks in the Saranac Lake area. Climbing all 6 will earn you the title of “Saranac Lake 6er” and climbing them all in 24 hours will make you an “Ultra 6er”.
The race to become one of the first 6er began on Saturday morning on Berkley Green in Saranac Lake. After signing in, a group of hearty souls headed out to brave the wind, cold, rain, and snow (yes, SNOW!). Hiking all 6 peaks was a trek of over 30 miles and 14 completed all six within 24 hours, making them the first “Ultra 6ers”.
