Re: Boston Marathon Tragedy
It is with heavy hearts that today we extend our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of those who were injured and killed yesterday afternoon in the attack at the Boston Marathon.
The Board of Directors and Staff of the Niagara Falls International Marathon offer the organizers of the Boston Marathon our deepest condolences.
As race organizers we always endeavour to offer our participants, their families, their friends, spectators and supporters the best race experience possible. We are shocked to see this event or any other civic event attacked in such a heinous fashion. We offer our support and help in any way we can.
The Board of Directors & Staff
The Niagara Falls International Marathon is proud to announce its partnership with the Great Lakes Marathon Series!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Twenty-Five Events Combine Efforts in the Formation of the Great Lakes Marathon Series
Series to Raise Awareness and Funds for Great Lakes Conservation and Restoration Initiatives
A new race series has been created for marathoners to add to their list of running feats. The Great Lakes Marathon Series is a collaboration of 25 marathons in the U.S. and Canada that take place along North America’s five Great Lakes.
The group has partnered with the Alliance for the Great Lakes – a four-star rated independent citizens organization devoted to the Great Lakes’ ecosystem and economies – to raise awareness of conservation and restoration efforts.
By partnering with the Alliance for the Great Lakes, the series’ goal is to invite the running world to enjoy the unique beauty of the individual races, while simultaneously raising awareness and funds needed to protect all five of the Great Lakes.
Participants will receive awards at various benchmarks throughout the series along with a grand prize after completion of all 25 races, regardless of how many years needed to complete the entire marathon tour. Registration for the Great Lakes Marathon Series itself is available at www.greatlakesmarathonseries.com/register/ and is free to all those interested.
Runners will be required to pay each individual marathon entry fee in order to participate, and signing up for the Great Lakes Marathon Series does not guarantee entry into any race. Also, only participation in races in 2013 and future years will be recognized as part of the Great Lakes Marathon Series.
To take the tour and for links to the websites of the 25 individual races, visit www.greatlakesmarathonseries.com/takethetour/
The first marathon in the series is the Medical Mutual Glass City Marathon in Toledo, Ohio, on April 28, 2013. Registration is currently available for this race, and registrants who use the promotion code “water” and register before March 31 will receive a $10 discount. The last marathon in the series this year will take place on November 3, at the Hamilton Marathon in Ontario.
