"Lace up your sneakers on October 24, and take a run at what is reputed to be the only marathon in the world that begins in one country and finishes in another. Participants in the Niagara Falls International Marathon line up beside the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in downtown Buffalo and run their first 6.5 kilometres through that city’s remarkably lovely parklands, before crossing the Peace Bridge and heading into Fort Erie, Ontario. The course, which has hosted two men’s U.S. Olympic marathon trials (1980 and 1984), then continues along the Niagara Parkway and finishes at Niagara Falls. Ready to run?
