Niagara Falls Womens' Half Marathon: June 3 2012

Postby DLS » Sat Oct 15, 2011 9:14 am

There's a new race on the books: The Niagara Falls Women's Half Marathon on June 3, 2012. It's a circle course where you run past the falls twice, and the swag is supposed to be sweee-t!

Also, it's the bicentennial of the War of 1812, so there will be a lot of other historical events going on in Niagara too.

Since this is in my backyard (so to speak), I'll be in it.

Deanna

P.S. -- guys can enter, too, but the swag is geared toward women...!

That's really cool! I will likely be doing Bread and Honey, though.

I picked up their card at the Running Room yesterday. I've been thinking I'd like to do a Women's Half. Emailed some of "my girls" and the bottle of wine in the swag bag enticed them! I strongly suspect I'll be in a van full of drinkers with a running problem heading down to Niagara. I like the 8am start and hope being along the water the whole time will keep us cool(er).

This looks interesting, I'm just afraid the June 3rd date could be too hot for me. I hate running in warm temps, especially that far.

The timing is a bit strange for this one, given there's Ottawa Race Weekend and also a Women's Half Marathon in Toronto just a week before.
Of course, I can't enter 2 of the 3 of the races, but it would be nice for the ladies if they spaced things out a bit more.

I wonder when the Mens' Half will be on :roll:

You can enter all 3. 2 of them just don't have prizes for you or a shirt that will fit.

I'm also in. Did the Toronto Women's half its first year. Never going back - the course was ridiculous. This one sounds way better and more scenic.
We're combining this with a trip over the border for some Mighty Taco :D

That is good to know - I was considering that race but was wondering how it would be as I read that the course is not closed to the public.

I love Mexican but have never heard of Mighty Taco - is it worth the trip?

Hey there -- I just checked with the race director, and he says the course is definitely closed from 7am-12pm.

BTW, is anyone interested in doing a wine tour that weekend?
