Join Lake Placid Marathon and Half
Nestled in the northernmost corner of northern New York’s Adirondack Park, the town of Lake Placid welcomes more than 2,000 runners each summer for its annual marathon, taking runners on a tour of the park and the area that hosted the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic.
Participants will certainly get a feel for the town’s Olympic past as the race course passes such notable sights as its National Sports Academy, Horseshow Grounds and Olympic Ski Jump and Speedskating Oval arena. The race was recently ranked by a Runner’s World magazine survey as the 2nd-best destination race in the United States.
As Lake Placid is set in the picturesque Adirondack Mountains, the course includes plenty of terrain you might expect in such a hilly region, with some flat stretches combined with a number of moderate uphills and downhills as well as a few steep climbs in elevation.
The course’s most significant hills occur at the ski jump area near mile 5 and at the finish near Lake Placid High School. Race organizers say they are not overly daunting, however, describing them as “reasonable but fair.”
LAKE PLACID MARATHON™ (two loop course): After the River Road turn around, runners will continue back through the Horseshow Grounds and Marathoners will turn back at the Mill Pond Drive and Rte. 73 intersection and return to the Horseshow Grounds for a short, flat loop within the Horseshow Grounds complex (This allows the marathoners to avoid the hill climb back up to the Speedskating Oval at the end of the first loop. They will only do it once at the finish instead of two times). The course proceeds back out Route 73 to the 4.0 mile out and back turn around on River Road. Marathoners continue back through the Horseshow Grounds and continue to the finish at the Olympic Speedskating Oval.
