Lake Placid Classic @ Lake Placid Public Beach on Mirror Lake

The 50th Anniversary of the Lake Placid Classic Half Marathon and 10K will be held Saturday, October 9, 2021.

Originally started in 1970 as a marathon run from Paul Smiths to Lake Placid, this family friendly race has evolved into a beloved annual event featuring the beautiful Olympic Village of Lake Placid and some of the most breathtaking fall scenery in the Adirondacks.
