Update from the Lake Placid!
Unfortunately, we are unable to race on June 13th as planned but we’re excited to announce that the official race day for the 2021 Lake Placid Marathon & Half will be Sunday, September 12th! We have secured current approval from local government for this date.
We feel confident that this date will make our race safe and successful, and we CAN’T WAIT to see you here. We do understand that this date may not be possible for everyone and have provided some options below. Thank you all for sticking through this with us, and we appreciate your patience while we work through the remaining details.
Please be advised that this is the local decision to secure a date for our race. We are still bound by the NYS Dept of Heath, Essex county, Village of Lake Placid, Town of North Elba and the Governor’s office. That being said, we cannot guarantee that the race will take place on September 12 if these entities don’t allow us to but we are confident at this time, looking at the data and trends, that it is possible.
Race Registration: We will open race registration on March 12, 2021, six months out from race day. More details and the link to register will appear on our website that day.
Deferrals: If you signed up for the 2020 Lake Placid Marathon & Half, you were automatically deferred to 2021. If you need to defer to 2022, we are offering free deferrals and transfers until May 1. Those that previously registered will receive a deferral link for the September race date prior to registration opening up to the general public.
Again, there are still more details we are working through, but wanted to provide our runners with an update as soon as we could.
