Welcome to Lake Placid, New York, USA!

When Is Athlete Check-In?

Saturday, June 11, 2016 from 1 PM - 6 PM. Race packet pick-up will take place in the Conference Center at Lake Placid located on Main Street in the downtown village of Lake Placid. Photo I.D. required.

Is There Race Day Check-In on June 12th?

Yes. We will also have race day bib pick-up from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m.on Sunday, June 12th at the Packet Pick-Up Tent near The START LINE on the Olympic Speed skating Oval. Photo I.D. required. SATURDAY CHECK IN RECOMMENDED.

*The 2016 Race begins promptly at 8:00 AM. Therefore Sunday morning Race Day Athlete Check-In is available BUT not recommended.

Why do I need to provide Photo I.D.?

Like all premier races, the Lake Placid Half Marathon & Lake Placid Marathon wants to provide a safe and fair race for all registered athletes. We want to ensure that the person competing under a certain race bib/chip is indeed the athlete who registered under a given name, age, and gender. This process also eliminates unauthorized bib/chip changes.

NY State Department of Transportation (DOT) Waiver:

Due to insurance requirements, ALL Athletes are required to sign a paper NYS DOT waiver at Athlete Check-In.

What Does My Mini Race Packet Contain?

Most importantly, it contains your Race Bib Number and ChronoTrack Systems™ B-Tag™ timing chip. Race bib numbers must be attached to the front of the clothing on race day so Course Officials can determine in which of the two races the athlete is participating (Half Marathon or Full Marathon). Safety pins for attachment are provided in the packet. The mini packet also contains a modest assortment of race goodies - not a lot of items that will quickly end up in the trash.

You will recieve your 2016 Lake Placid Marathon & Lake Placid Half Marathon Running T-Shirt.

Can I Check-In A Friend Or Relative Or Can Someone Check-In For Me?

NO. Athletes must be present to check-in and provide proper identification, and sign waiver(s).
