The Niagara Falls International Marathon courses from Buffalo, the United States to Niagara Falls, Canada. It was first held in 1974 but was put on a ten-year hold from 1987 to 1996 and then finally relaunched in 1997.

The Niagara Falls International Marathon passes a border control, so the participants have to show NEXUS card or passport at the start of the race. It will be returned to the owner at the finish line or will be kept by the runner during the event. This marathon is among the few marathons on the planet because it begins in one country and ends in another.

The marathon starts in Buffalo at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. The first 6.5 kilometres go through the historic parkways of the city before crossing the Bridge into Fort Erie, Canada. The route curves south and north, lies along the Niagara Parkway, a landscaped road, winding along the Niagara River. And then the end of the race, which faces the Niagara Falls on the U.S.–Canada international border.

If you don't feel like running a full marathon, there is a variety of distance options to choose from. Here you go 5K or 10K races and half marathon.
