Covid-19 Policy

Covid-19 Testing Rules have changed

Registered Marathoners, Half Marathon and Relay Runners will be required to provide proof of a complete COVID-19 vaccination series or a negative COVID-19 test result to participate in the 2021 Adirondack Marathon Distance Festival.  A complete COVID-19 vaccination series is defined as two weeks after a two dose vaccination series or two weeks after a single dose series. Or the alternative is a negative COVID-19 Molecular test (preferred) or Antigen test, no at home tests are accepted for either.  The test must have been administered by a lab, pharmacy, or other medical facility within 72 hours prior to race day.   

The immunization record or test report must include the name of the individual matching their government issued photo identification both of which need to be presented at Packet Pickup.

All attendees will be required to wear face coverings while at any indoor venue, on buses to and from the half marathon and relay exchange areas, Sag wagon or if in close proximity with others and runner’s may be required to wear face coverings in the starting area for all events.

If you have tested positive or been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of the event, please do not participate in or attend the event.   You will be eligible for a free deferral to 2022 or a refund by providing your official quarantine document or notice from your health department.

These decisions have been taken to protect you, the runners, your family and friends, our volunteers and those that live in our community. 


Refunds Are Not An Option – As a 501(c)3 organization, the Adirondack Marathon expends all income generated from registration well before the race actually occurs, and registration income does not nearly cover the cost of the event.

2021 Deferral Policy

Runners who opt to defer their race entry until the 2022 race will receive a $40 deferral credit when registering for the 2022 race.
