Welcome to the Snowball Express Century! The Snowball Express Century ride is part of the Adirondack Ultra Challenge and all mileage will count toward the ADIRONDACK ULTRA CUP.
The course will be a rolling figure 8 loop through Saratoga County and will take us along the Hudson River and to Saratoga Lake, Wilton, Gansevoort and Moreau. New for this year, we’re adding a 50 mile option, and there is also an easy bailout at 30 miles, just in case it’s a little too wintery.
Be sure to dress according to the conditions, and if you think you’ll take more then 9 hours, you’ll also need to bring your lights. This ride will be unsupported on the road, but we’ll have food at the start, middle and finish, along with gels, drinks and bars to take along with us. To help you prepare, we’ve created a rider checklist. To view it, click here. We’ll also have a small selection of lights, batteries, tires, tubes and other merchandise for sale at the start, middle and finish.
We’ll start from our event director’s home at: 7 Pearl Street • Schuylerville, NY. This is a residential neighborhood, so please be courteous when arriving and departing. For travel directions and parking instructions, click here.
Same day registration will be available beginning one hour before the start, and we’re pleased to announce that we now accept credit cards for on-site registration and purchases.
This ride will be held rain or shine, but if there’s a chance of snow, ice or other dangerous conditions, it will be postponed and rescheduled. If that occurs, and a pre-registered rider can’t make the new date, they’ll be given a full refund or credit toward another ride, whichever they prefer. Otherwise, entry fees are non refundable and non transferable.
