Yes, many of you asked for it, so we have created a magnificent 5K course. What scenery.
You will run or walk past The Falls TWICE!, and hear the thunder of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls and the American Falls.
Along the mighty Niagara River, the rapids above The FALLS, and then there they are, world famous Niagara Falls.
With luck, you will feel the mist, and see a magnificent rainbow over the Niagara gorge.
This is a perfect getaway weekend with a Half Marathon and a 5K. And, so much else to do in the Niagara Falls area.
Road Trip, Road Trip! And, great cosmetic samples in the swag bag.
Get friends or family or co-workers or neighbours, or people you have just met, together for this destination getaway.

Why a Women's Event?

Healthy and active lifestyles are a way of life for many women, but only a dream for too many others. Women have many demands on their time, so including a regular exercise schedule demands exceptional discipline and commitment.
Reward yourself with the Niagara Falls Womens Half Marathon. Set a goal, find a group to train with, and make Sunday, June 3, 2018 the date you will achieve greatness. Running or walking a Half Marathon is an incredible accomplishment. Do it!
Share the morning with other women from diverse backgrounds, active women of all ages and shapes, all proudly achieving t heir fit ness goals. The sense of empowerment will be amazing, and you will glow.
This event will be so much more than others. Run or walk past The Falls TWICE!, through the Niagara Parks, past the churning rapids, and out and back along the mighty Niagara River. This will be the wateriest course in Canada. What a way to experience this wonder of the world.
All of our swag, clothing and prizing has been selected specifically for women.
Womens running and walking events are fabulous. Glow with us on June 3rd in Niagara Falls.


Kathrine Switzer Will Be With Us Again!

In 1967, she was the first women to officially enter and run the Boston Marathon. They tried to physically remove her from the race! Largely because of her efforts and leadership, by 1984 the Women's Marathon was included in the Olympic Games. What an amazing journey she is living.
And now, some 58% of the runners and walkers in Half Marathons are women. It's unbelievable!
In 2011, when she was inducted into the U.S.A. National Women's Hall of Fame, it was not just for breaking barriers but also for creating positive global social change. Because of her, millions of women are now empowered by participating in sports. Or, as Kathrine says, "it's not about running and walking. It's about changing peoples lives." Kathrine loves our event, with the course going past The Falls TWICE! And then along the mighty Niagara River. "It's one of the world's beautiful courses, and also a great course for PB's."
The whole weekend is a true celebration of fitness and healthy lifestyles. So many unique touches make this Women's Half Marathon a lifelong memory.
