Ironman Lake Placid (sometimes referred to as Ironman USA) is a triathlon race owned by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) that takes place Lake Placid, New York and the surrounding Adirondack Mountains. It is the longest-running Ironman triathlon in North America apart from the Ironman World Championship.[1] Lake Placid played host to the Winter Olympics in 1932 and again in 1980, and has hosted Ironman Lake Placid every summer since 1999.[2]

In August 2014, the CEO of WTC, Andrew Messick, announced that Ironman Lake Placid would be among the list of North American races that would no longer offer a pro purse prize in 2015. This decision came as a result of the growing Ironman brand, the increased fragmentation of the overall purse prize, and the date of the race in relation to the Ironman World Championship.[3]
