Lake Placid Half Marathon
There are two variations to this route based on two separate running events hosted annually in Lake Placid.
Lake Placid Marathon & Lake Placid Half Marathon Route (annual June event):
Starting at the Olympic Speed Skating Oval the run begins down Main Street clockwise around Mirror Lake on Mirror Lake Drive to join Parkside Drive at the National Sports Academy. Turn left on Parkside Drive, at the end of Parkside Drive veer right onto Route 73. The run follows Route 73 to the Horse Show Grounds and past the ski jumps, left on River Road, entering into a 2.8 mile out and back on River Road. Runners then follow Route 73 back to the finish at the Olympic Speed Skating Oval for 13.1 miles.
Lake Placid Classic Half Marathon Route (Annual September Event):
The Lake Placid Classic Half Marathon is similar to the Lake Placid Half Marathon starting at the Oval, running clockwise around Mirror Lake, left on Parkside, right on Route 73, past the Ski Jumps, left on River Road, then down all the way to the end of River Road and back (instead of turning around part way), finishing at the Horse Show Grounds (instead of continuing back to the Oval).
