The Tupper Lake 8-Miler is back for 2021 but with a few changes to comply with COVID-19 restrictions. Registration will be online and will extend until Friday 8 PM on June 25. The race itself will be on Saturday 26 June. There will be no post race BBQ, no prizes, and neither will there be an award ceremony. This means that there will also be no awards, but we will make the results of the race available on a notice board as quickly as possible. There will be T-shirts for the first 60 registrants: medium, large and extra-large. Two days before the race you will have to fill out a COVID-19 health questionnaire for the race organizers to be in compliance with New York State requirements. This will be sent to registrants shortly before race day. All proceeds from the race will benefit the Heart Center at Adirondack Medical Center.
On the following day, Sunday 27 June, there will be the Celebrate Paddling Invitational which will be organized by the Northern Forest Canoe Trail: the same organization that organized the very successful Round the Mountain Race on 8 May. This will be on Lake Flower and will be a 10 mile race.
