Up to a thousand runners from all over the North Country, New England and Quebec will race to the finish line.
The youngest signed up is only 5-years-old and the oldest 77!
Stephanie Desautels started the marathon after her father was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.
Now, it's a Plattsburgh tradition raising money for a good cause.
All proceeds are donated to TEAM FOX, a foundation run by actor Michael J Fox for Parkinson's Research.
Over the years, the half marathon has raised more than a quarter of a million dollars.
The race kicks off this Sunday at 8 AM.
