Participants pose during one of the Capital Region Nordic Alliance’s biathlon events this summer.
Some sporting accommodations include conforming orienteering trails to benefit people in wheelchairs. There will be a paintball biathlon where shooting distance can vary depending on visual or ambulatory status. The trail runs planned for the weekend should be navigable for people with a variety of ambulatory needs. Garnet Hill Lodge is also handicapped accessible.
Myer plans to not only turn the Tune Up into an annual event, but also to host similar all-inclusive events over the course of the year. If all goes well, he hopes to turn the Tune Up into one of the major events in the New York/New England area.
“There’s no reason to hibernate during winter,” Myer said.
