The Adirondack Marathon  -- less than two weeks away --  has just been given top honors as the state’s best marathon. The award comes from the website Flipkey.com, a subsidiary of TripAdvisor.com. From race organizer Joel Friedman:

"If you haven't decided which fall race to run, we think we have the answer for you…Based on industry research and traveler feedback, FlipKey.com found the 50 most popular reviewed and positively reviewed marathon/races in each state across the country and the Adirondack Marathon has been selected as New York State's 2014 Top Marathon & Races Worth Traveling For.

The Adirondack Marathon is just one of several races that make up the Adirondack Marathon Distance Festival. The 18th Edition of the event will be held on the weekend of September 27 & 28 in Schroon Lake, NY. Not ready for a full marathon, we offer a 2 person and 4 person relay, a Half Marathon, 5k & 10k and even a fun run for the children. What a great time of the year to spend a weekend in the Adirondack Mountains, and especially in Schroon Lake"
