Click on map for larger view. Route is an out and back on paved bike path alongside the majestic Niagara Parkway. Very scenic with several road crossings. Turn around is just past the Horseshoe Falls by Table Rock Restaurant.
This is a public trail. We will not have exclusive use of the trail. Keep an eye (or ear out) for cyclists and please respect other users of the trail
Cars – although the course is relatively traffic free, there are countless driveways and intersections, as well as a few locations where the trail actually crosses streets.
Please be careful, course marshals are not allowed to stop traffic for you so you will have to be on your best pedestrian behaviour and cross at your own risk
Every 5 k, NUUN, CLIF Bloks, bananas, pretzels, chips, cookies, coke, gingerale, water
Port-a-potties are at 5 km, 10 km, 15 km and 20 km aid stations.
Public toilets in Table Rock restaurant at 25 km (at the brink of the falls), and various other public/park locations
At 25 km aid station only. Leave drop bags at marked
area inside Kinsmen Scout Hall during kit pickup.
Please mark them well so you know which is yours and please do not put valuable items in drop bags because we may not be able to get them back to the start/finish as quickly as you get back
WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
Preservation of our trails through the Bruce Trail Conservancy
Due to the nature of the paved trail and with runners/walkers traveling back and forth, we do not permit wheelchairs, strollers or dogs
This course is not closed for our specific use so there will be pedestrians/cyclists on the paved trail. There are also several road crossings where marshals will be providing instructions to runners. For these reasons we suggest that runners/walkers do not use headphones. Note that if you are attempting to set a 50k or 100k record, IAAF Competition Rule 144 3(b) states “Possession or use of video recorders, radios, CD, radio transmitters, mobile phone or similar devices in the competition area are not allowed”
In the event that you are unable to attend the race, the Niagara Ultra Races will be abiding by a strict “No Refunds” and “No Deferrals” policy. We apologize for the inconvenience but do want to let you know that you can transfer your entry.
