We have just confirmed with ORDA management that the Oval is officially closed for the season due to the warm temperatures (it is currently 55 degrees and sunny) and continued warm weather forecasted. Therefore, that also means that the Lake Placid Ice Marathon Finale is cancelled.
If you have entered the Marathon, you will be given a full refund. Please let me know if you are having difficulties cancelling room reservations, and I will do my best to resolve the issue. Thank you marathoners for your understanding.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the skaters, parents, coaches, officials, volunteers, and supporters who helped make this year one of the best yet. Without you, we could not have such successful meets and fun times on the Oval! Please stay tuned, as we have exciting plans in development which will be announced soon.
Take care, and if I don’t see you sooner, see you next season!
