LAKE PLACID - The second annual ADK 80K trail running and mountain biking event took place this weekend on the trails of Mount Van Hoevenberg.

The 80-kilometer event kicked off with the trail run Saturday and wrapped up Sunday with mountain biking and cyclocross races. Competitors were given the option to compete as individuals or as part of two- or four-person teams.

Several competitors did double-duty by participating in both days' events. Husband and wife Loring and Colleen Porter teamed up Saturday to complete the run course in 8 hours, 21 minutes, 23 seconds. Loring returned Sunday to take part in the four-person mixed bike race, and along with Mike Galgay, Caitlin Skufca and Bill Skufca, the team finished in 5:22:24.
