Description

OLD FORGE MARATHON (26.2, 13.1 & 5K)      

September 8, 2018 | 8:30 AM

As one of the western gateway communities of the Adirondack Park, Old Forge, NY is the perfect destination venue for an Adirondack trail running event! The full marathon, half marathon and 5K all take place on established bike trails (snowmobile in the winter) that run between the northeast portion of Old Forge, just north of Water Safari, and work their way towards Eagle Bay. The trail course is mostly gravel and dirt roads. A true Adirondack experience. Fall foliage is estimated to be about 15%-25% peak.

A portion of the Race proceeds will benefit Old Forge Little League, Old Forge HS Key Club and other local area benefactors.
