After decades of success, organizers of the annual Le Race De Chaumont 5k/12k are re-branding the community event to put focus on the miles of scenic Lake Ontario waterfront that participants enjoy along the route. The event will now be known as the Lake Monster 5k/12K. The Lake Monster 5k/12K begins in Chaumont village center, at the historic Alexander Copley House. Runners then make their way to Point Salubrious for a 5K out and back or 12K loop along the scenic Lake Ontario shoreline with views of Guffin, Sawmill and Chaumont Bay, as well as Cherry Island. A 1.5 mile walk will follow the same direction as the 5K and will also be out and back. Our Lake Monster logo was designed by a Lyme Central School student, Rosamond Hunt. The creature is A Great Blue Heron, Osprey and Northern Pike hybrid and represents the lush Great Lakes wildlife. Proceeds will benefit Lyme Parks and Recreation and the Lyme Community Foundation.
DATE: The timed road race and walk will start at 9 am on Sunday May 29th.
