The 49th annual Adirondack Health Lake Placid Classic Half Marathon and 10K will be held on October 12, 2019.
Starting in the Village of Lake Placid, on the famous Olympic Speed Skating oval, this family friendly event welcomes runners of all abilities. Run through Lake Placid’s main business district, around Mirror Lake, then exit the village limits into the Town of North Elba. Running past the historic Ski Jumping complex, the participants 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, including Whiteface Mountain. 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. ALL proceeds are donated directly to local youth organizations and community programs aimed at improving the health of all, regardless of ability to pay.
