Runners, Volunteers and Fans,

We wanted to update you all on the 2021 Lake Placid Marathon & Half, as we know many of you are training and eager to get signed up for the race.

Race Day:

Currently, our race is set for September 12, 2021. With that being said, we are at the mercy of our local/regional/state authorities, and we are working our hardest to get the details figured out to ensure a safe and fun race for everyone.


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 and Transfers from 2020

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. If you need to defer to 2022, please email us at

Charity Partners:

We have spent our extra time this past year doing more to support our charity partners. In 2020, we partnered with the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort, Blue Shield of NENY, MVP Health and the Fallen Arch to donate over 120 pair of shoes to our first responders and front line health care workers.  We also donated $6,500 to our local food pantry through Virtual ATL and $300 to the Lake Placid Backpack Program, Elmore SPCA and the ACLU  through a lawn sign initiative Hate Has No Home Here. We hope you will help us support our charity partners like the Elmore SPCA, Lake Placid Backpack Program, and ACLU if you can. Here’s a link to do so:

Again, there are still more details we are working through, but wanted to provide our runners with an update as soon as we could.

Now get training, and we’ll see you in September! #LPMarathon #GetYourGold
