Lake Placid Classic Half Marathon & 10k @ North Elba Horse Show Grounds
Oct 8 all-day

On October 08, 2022, the 51st Annual Lake Placid Classic Half Marathon and 10K will be held. This event is one of the only not-for-profit running/walking events in the Lake Placid region. The goal of the event is to raise funds for local youth organizations and supporting local wellness scholarships. Over the past several years, it has become a vital fundraiser for the local Connecting Youth and Community (CYC) of Lake Placid and Wilmington, a not-for-profit, youth development organization made up of local community leaders, youth, parents, and business partners. Their mission is to promote positive youth development.

This event starts and finishes at the North Elba Horse Show grounds in the shadow of the Olympic Ski Jumps, Olympic Cauldron, and high peaks. The average number of participants are 550, so a smaller, affordable event.

The race route encompasses two moderate hills, one at the start and one towards the end. Start time is 8:00 am, with the course closing at 12:00 pm.

For both distances, awards for overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd places and for top 3 age groups including 19 and under; 20-29; 30-39;40-49;50-59;60-69 and over 70.

Park on the wide shoulder on Island Cottage Road. The race takes place on the Lake Ontario State Parkway Trail from Island Cottage Road to Dewey Avenue.

Check-in (Packet Pick-up) is 4 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. You can show up after 4:45 p.m., but you will not be able to start until the race director can stop what she’s doing and check you in.

The wide, paved path is well away from buildings, ending at Dewey Ave where you turn around. It goes along the parkway but is mostly buffered by field and trees. Illumination is a must! Well-stocked aid station and decorating contest for personal aid stations are among the various amenities. Do as many or few out-and-back treks as you’d like for up to the entire 12 hours.

Barbecue Bash Quarters @ Spencerport Depot and Canal Museum
Nov 6 @ 7:30 am – 2:30 pm

This unique lapped event gives racers the chance to do any number of quarters of a marathon up to a full marathon. The generous 7-hour cutoff is perfect for those who need extra time at shorter than marathon distance and for those who aren’t quite certain they can do 26.2 in more customary cut-off times. Designed with the idea of giving folks the flexibility to try something they aren’t sure they can do, if you sign up for more quarters than you actually accomplish on race day, you do not earn a DNF (did not finish); instead, you get dropped down to the next lower number of quarters you did complete. Unless you fail to complete a single 6.55-mile lap within seven hours, you will get a finishing medal.

Register by the shirt cutoff to get the shirt of your size choice. Those missing the ordering cut-off may be given an alternate gift as a keepsake. After the race, enjoy food by Texas Barbecue Joint and more. Despite the main edible in barbecue being meat, there will be options for vegans and vegetarians!

See the registration page for more information about what comes with this race predominantly in residential Spencerport, NY.
