When:Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.

Please note, this event has been cancelled. However, Adirondack Health is putting together a virtual Jingle Bell 5K that will be part of the Lake Placid Village Holiday Stroll.


Adirondack Health's annual Turkey Trot is a flat 5K walk/run that starts at 8:30am on Thanksgiving morning at the Speed Skating Oval in Lake Placid. The event goes around Mirror Lake and ends back at the Oval.

Please bring three non-perishable food items on the day of the race to donate to local school food pantries.

Prizes will be awarded to first, second, and third place overall male and female finishers. If you can "stuff the turkey," or beat the mystery turkey runner to the finish line, you can receive bragging rights at your Thanksgiving table!

Kindly leave the dog at home.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the local school food pantries and Adirondack Health's Fit for Life program.
