On your mark, get set, go! The Great Race in St. Albans, now in its 37th year, offers a friendly competition featuring a triathlon and duathlon. Racers of all abilities run three miles, bike 12, then paddle another three, all on the beautiful shores of Lake Champlain. And, for the second year, kayakers and canoists are joined by upright athletes in the standup paddleboard division (it’s harder than it looks, folks). Those averse to agua have the option to pound the pavement on foot and by wheel without having to slip into the waves. Food and live music follow these acts of exertion, giving contenders a chance to cool down and enjoy the spoils of the sport, whether that means top honors or the satisfaction of a race well run.
