The 15th annual Lake Placid Marathon will be on Sunday, June 9, 2019. Each June, this marathon attracts athletes and spectators from all over North America and abroad. This world class race, set in the Olympic mountains of Lake Placid, follows a course tucked away in the beautiful High Peaks Region of upstate NY. Designed to be similar to the Ironman USA Lake Placid triathlon run course, the races begin on Main Street in the Olympic Village and proceed around beautiful Mirror Lake for 3 miles before heading out of town, where the route passes the Lake Placid Horse Show Grounds and the ski jumps before turning onto River Road and following the AuSable River. This scenic course has a stunning backdrop of Whiteface Mountain and the High Peaks mountain ranges.
