Lake Placid Classic 10K & Half Marathon

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.
