Laconia Athlete Plans Run Around Winnipesaukee

Laconia Athlete Plans Run Around Winnipesaukee
May 13, 2024

Nathan Lamarre is a 29-year-old Laconia resident who is challenging himself to run around Lake Winnipesaukee.

Lamarre’s best guess is that only two people have previously tackled the challenge.

At 62 miles, it counts as an ultramarathon, and a particularly challenging one at that, with more than 4,000 feet of vertical gain.

The most recent person to do so was Myles Chase, who circled the state’s biggest lake in 2010.

The only other person known to achieve the feat was Bruce Kneuer, Lamarre’s father-in-law, in 1989.

Lamarre plans to start at the Weirs Beach sign and complete his challenge on Wednesday.
