The Wakely Dam Ultra is a 55K ultra marathon through the Adirondack Park wilderness of New York State. It takes place along a remote section of the Northville Placid Trail between Piseco Lake and the Wakely Dam. The race is totally self supported, all runners will provide their own aid. It is a technical trail race with 7,381 feet of total elevation change. There are no cross roads, when you enter at the Wakely Dam there are only two ways out; emerge at the Piseco Airport or return from whence you came. Adding your name to the list of nearly 400 runners who have conquered Wakely will take a fair amount of fitness, planning, toughness, and maybe even a little bit of luck.
