Walk, Jog or Run your Way through a Half Marathon or 5K
The City of Plattsburgh and the Adirondack Coast Visitor's Bureau are proud to announce the return of the Biggest Loser Run/Walk in 2014. A Premier Destination race will be held in Plattsburgh on June 1, encouraging local residents to get up and get moving. The Biggest Loser Run/Walk is licensed through the NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products Group and Shine America.
This event returns to Plattsburgh after last year's considerable success. With a scenic race route through downtown Plattsburgh and along Lake Champlain, well over 1,000 people participated in either the 5K, Half Marathon, or Kids' one-mile race. Participants came from 26 states including Florida and Hawaii as well as two Canadian provinces. Hundreds more gathered as spectators to take in the festival like atmosphere. Contestants Dan and Jackie Evans from NBC's hit show “The Biggest Loser” Season 5 are organizers of the event and emphasize the non-intimidating environment of the races. The Biggest Loser RunWalk is designed for everyone from the first-time runner to the seasoned athlete, and has a longer course time limit to complete the race.
