After 3 years hosted at Skidmore, The Lions Duathon picked this year to relocate to Saratoga Casion and Raceway. With attendance rising from just under 300 participants last year to over 380 this year, the roomier setting was a good change.
For four years, the duathon has been one of the Saratoga Lions Club's primary fundraisers. Proceeds from the duathon, as with the Golf Tournament and the Lions Casino's go to support all the projects the Lions fund to improve the community. A focus of the LIons is the preservation of Sight, in recognition of how shortly after the founding of the Lions Club, Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become Knights of the Blind in the fight against darkness.
