Route is an out and back on paved bike path alongside the majestic Niagara Parkway. Very scenic with several road crossings. Turn around is 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, Gatorade or other electrolyte, 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 15 km aid station only (doubles as 35k aid station). 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
Personalize your medal with an iTAB. Collect your medal at the finish line and your iTAB will arrive in the post a few weeks later engraved with your Name and Finish Time. A great way to celebrate your achievement.
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.
On race day public health restrictions, as necessitated by Covid-19 may not allow in-person racing. As the organizers have to commit to the purchase of shirts & medals well in advance of race day, the race will proceed virtually.
