Lake Placid Classic

The 48th annual Adirondack Health Lake Placid Classic Half Marathon and 10K will be held on October 06, 2018. Starting in the Village of Lake Placid, on the famous Olympic Speed Skating oval, this family friendly event welcomes runners of all abilities. Both races run through the main village of Lake Placid, around Mirror Lake, then exit the village limits into the town of North Elba.

The participants will run past the historic Ski Jumping complex, entertain a few hills, then run out and back along the banks of the beautiful Au Sable River. The final push allows runners to enjoy a true Adirondack hill, (but it is a short 3/10th of a mile hill), and then finish at the Lake Placid Horse Show Grounds in the shadows of the Ski Jumping complex and several mountain ranges. The event continues to grow in both participation and popularity, revitalizing the event as a fall tradition in Lake Placid.

The Lake Placid Classic maintains the objective of supporting our local youth, businesses and the health of our community. The majority of the proceeds are donated directly to local youth organizations and community efforts. Register early on Active.com, for early registration prices. On-site registration will be October 5th at the Mirror Lake Beach House (35 Parkside Drive) from 4:00 pm-7:00 pm. On-site registration rates are 10K - $60; Half Marathon - $85.

Visit LakePlacidClassic.com for more information for this year’s event. Come out and cheer on the runners and walkers on Saturday, October 06, 2018. Both races get underway at 8:00 am in front of the Olympic Oval and finish at the North Elba Horse Show Grounds.
