Runners will follow the elegantly landscaped and meticulously kept Niagara River Parkway just above water level. 200 years ago, British and American troops fought up and down this area, but today it is an image of tranquility. On the river side of the course, the most notable landmarks are the Marina, boat launches, parks and picnicking areas. By the time you reach the north end of Navy Island near Chippawa, the river is well over a mile wide.
Coming into Chippawa, the course bears left around an inlet and leads into the picturesque village. As you approach the turn you will see the billowing spray of Niagara Falls for the first time, as well as the first intake gates of the hydropower system that furnishes electricity to both countries. The course then moves back onto the majesty of the Parkway bringing you to the new finish line located in front of the Toronto Power Generating Station National Historic Site of Canada (for more information click here).
