OLD FORGE MARATHON (26.2, 13.1, 10K & 5K)      

September 11 & 12 2020


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, 10K 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.



For the second year, a 10K race will take place on Friday, the day before the big event (there is also a 10K event on Saturday). Do the Friday 10K as a solo event or BE THE LOON- run the 10K on Friday and the half or full marathon on Saturday for the 2 Day Loon Challenge experience and of course earn some extra LOONY SWAG!



A portion of the race proceeds will benefit Old Forge HS Key Club and other local area benefactors.
