The only marathon in the world that starts in one country and finishes in another.
Do you think you can beat Matt Loiselle’s time of 2:27:33 or Elizabeth Primrose’s time of 2:55:26.6? Yes, that’s right. They can run 42 km (26 miles) in under 3 hours.
The marathon starts at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo N.Y. The first 6.5km (4 miles) of the race travel the majestic parkways of Buffalo before crossing the Peace Bridge into the historic old town of Fort Erie, Ontario. The route then follows the beautiful Niagara River Parkway and finishes at the magnificent Niagara Falls.
If a marathon is a little too much for you can sign up for the 5km or 10km run.
