San Diego, CA. The votes are in and Competitor Magazine’s 500,000 readers have once again chosen their favorite events and services in the active sports world. The Lake Placid Marathon earns Northeast’s “Best Destination” race distinction!
Based in San Diego, California, Competitor Magazine publishes eight regional editions 12 times a year. The publication focuses on fitness-oriented endurance sports like running, cycling, swimming and triathlon. The magazine is targeted at adult athletes who participate in these sports for both recreation and fitness.
Race directors Jeff Edwards and Brad Konkler are pleased with the race’s distinction. "Lake Placid is a true sports destination town" says Edwards "our community businesses and local residents really value this event and help make it a high quality experience for athletes and spectators". Home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Games, Lake Placid is a location that is recognized around the world. "Our picturesque Olympic Village setting and spectacular Adirondack Mountain views, scenic lakes, rivers and streams along the race course really add to the race experience" states Konkler. “This race was originally designed nine years ago as an early season option for runners primarily in the Northeast states. However, each year we attract athletes from over 40 U.S. States, Canada and abroad. This is very unique for a race our size and a testament to Lake Placid, New York”.
