Niagara Falls International Marathon
The Niagara Falls International Marathon celebrated its inaugural running in 1974. The race was known as the Skylon Marathon. Beginning during the first wave of the North American running boom, it quickly became a favourite as it was, and still is, the only marathon in the world that starts in one country and finishes in another… a destination marathon that crosses an international border, providing the runners with an experience of a lifetime. Niagara Falls International Marathon is also a Boston Qualifier.
The Marathon starts in Buffalo, NY at the world-famous Albright-Knox Art Gallery which houses one of the finest collections of modern art in the world. All participants will have access inside to warm up and explore before the race.
The first 5 miles of the race travel along the majestic parkway of Buffalo before crossing the Peace Bridge into the historic old town of Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada. The course loops around Fort Erie and doubles back into the town, passing along River Road, continuing on the scenic Niagara Parkway for the next 18 miles.
Coming into Chippawa, the course bears left around an inlet and leads into the picturesque village. As you approach the turn you will see the billowing spray of Niagara Falls for the first time, as well as the first intake gates of the hydropower system that furnishes electricity to both countries. The course then moves back onto the majesty of the Parkway bringing you to the new finish line located in front of the Toronto Power Generating Station National Historic Site of Canada.
