Niagara Falls USA Marathon


iRun WNY, in cooperation with the Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce, Niagara Falls USA Chamber, and Destination Niagara is proud to announce the inaugural Niagara Falls USA Marathon, Half Marathon, and Historic Lewiston 5K! Experience for yourself the beauty and history of the Niagara Region. Net proceeds from the event to support Community Missions and the Salvation Army of Niagara Falls.

MARATHON: Sunday May 1, 2022
START TIME 8:00AM: We are working on a revised 26.2 course and will post details here very soon. In the meantime we have turned off registration for the full marathon until a new route is confirmed.

HALF-MARATHON: Saturday April 30, 2022
START TIME 8:00AM: The proposed course will have participants park at Artpark State Park in Lewiston. The start/finish line will be located on the corner of South 4th Street and Center Street in the Historic Village of Lewiston. Runners will travel through Artpark State Park and up the new pathway adjacent to the Niagara Scenic Parkway to the top of Lewiston Hill. Continuing along the Niagara River Gorge, participants will have spectacular views of Canada as they run past the Niagara Power Project, Devil's Hole, Whirlpool State Park to the turnaround located just prior to the Whirlpool Bridge before returning back to Lewiston using the same route.

HISTORIC LEWISTON 5K: Friday April 29, 2022
START TIME 6:00PM: Participants will park at Artpark State Park in Lewiston. The 5K course being designed will feature a scenic run through the historic village of Lewiston, New York. Lewiston was the first European settlement in Western New York. During the 1600s and 1700s, when the French and British traders settled in the area, Lewiston was instrumental in the development of the Great Lakes region because of its strategic location. There are many historic buildings and sites found throughout the village. One of the most famous is the Lewiston Frontier House featured on this years' finisher medal. The Frontier House, built in 1824, is situated at 460 Center Street and was once hailed as the best hotel west of Albany!
