TUPPER LAKE — The Tupper Lake Triad Challenge will return for its third year on Saturday, with prizes, raffles, lunch and beer at Raquette River Brewing after the race.

Runners and walkers are welcome to take part in the challenge, which is a timed climb of the three Tupper Triad peaks: Mount Arab, Coney Mountain and Goodman Mountain. The challenge includes driving time between the three mountains, all of which are within close distance of the village of Tupper Lake.

The race begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday at the trailhead for Coney Mountain, on state Route 30 south of Tupper Lake. Climbers will then go to Goodman Mountain, then through the village toward Cranberry Lake for Mount Arab. The race will take place on state Department of Environmental Conservation trails.

The Triad Challenge will cover 7.6 total miles on trails, with driving in between. This year, the challenge is being managed by the Tupper Lake Rotary Club, and registrations will be limited to 50 participants. Registration costs $40 and includes a shirt, lunch voucher and a free drink at Raquette River Brewing after the race. Registration forms can be found at the brewery or at www.tupperlake.com.
