TICONDEROGA - The 23rd annual Montcalm Mile will race through the streets of Ticonderoga July 4th.
One of the fastest, most-competitive road races in the North Country, the foot race will be held prior to the traditional Independence Day parade.
The Montcalm Mile will start at 1:45 p.m. in front of Wicker Ford on Wicker Street and proceed down Montcalm Street to the finish at the Heritage Museum.
It's a downhill course that virtually assures runners of personal bests and attracts most of the region's top athletes. Also attracting runners is the fact the race is run minutes prior to Ticonderoga's annual Fourth of July parade, which means hundreds of spectators line the course offering encouragement.
Registration starts at 12:30 p.m. at Wicker Ford. For entry information contact Jim Cunningham, 26 Amherst Ave., Ticonderoga (phone 585-7291, Email firstname.lastname@example.org).
