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.
Currently, our race is set for June 13, 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 have not opened registration yet, and won’t until we have all the details figured out. If you saw on our registration site that it was opening on January 1st, we apologize for the mistake, and we promise to send out a communication to EVERYONE as soon as we can open registration.
Deferrals and Transfers from 2020
For those of you who registered for 2020, you have been automatically deferred to 2021. If you emailed us and asked to defer to June 12, 2022, that has been taken care of as well. We also allowed bibs to be transferred to other participants by emailing us directly. If you need to defer to 2022, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
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: https://bit.ly/3rBUtlp
Again, we are working diligently to make 2021 the year that we return to racing. We appreciate your support, and hope you will follow us on social media for updates. Thank you for being part of a great community!
Train on, stay safe,
Lake Placid Marathon & Half
