LONG LAKE -- The Town of Long Lake in partnership with John Dillon Park, International Paper and Paul Smith's College announces the third annual Running from the Flies 5K running race Sunday, June 15, at 10 a.m.

New for 2014 is a one-mile Kids Dash. This is a shorter race on a different course for ages 12 and under. The registration fees are the same as adults to cover the cost of the t-shirt.

Registration is $15 each in advance or $20 race day (8:30-10 a.m.). Racers who register by June 2 are guaranteed t-shirts. The 5K course is mixed dirt and gravel with some flat terrain and gradual hills.

Trophies will be awarded the overall top male and female runners.

Parking is one mile north of the entrance to John Dillon Park at 2150 Tupper Rd. Shuttles move participants and spectators to the Welcome Center starting at 8 a.m.

Due to the remote location guests are encouraged to bring all items needed to the race site. Gear storage will be available. The shuttle stops running 10 minutes before the race so arrive early.

John Dillon Park is owned by International Paper and managed by Paul Smith's College. It is a mobility accessible campground on the shores of Grampus Lake in Long Lake.

The campground is open to everyone. It offers free lean-to camping, making the natural landscape of the Adirondacks available to everyone, especially people with disabilities. The park has nine lean-tos built for accessibility. There are wide, flat trails to accommodate wheelchairs.
