This event has been known for being a “runner’s race”. It is maintained as an affordable event that is organized by and for runners, to promote health and the community. With this in mind, almost all of your race entries and sponsorships are donated to local youth organizations that are dedicated to making a difference in the lives local young people. It’s why we run!
This year, we run to support Connecting Youth and Communities, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and their efforts in helping to keep our local kids healthy in spirit, mind, and body.
The Lake Placid Classic is a friendly running event that takes participants through the beautiful village of Lake Placid during the spectacular early fall season. The starting line oozes with excitement, energetic music and plenty of pre-race activities to warm you up for your run. Once you cross the finish line enjoy music, food, and comparing race stories with new friends! This is a wonderful event the entire family can enjoy and a great reason for a fall weekend vacation in the Adirondacks.
