NFMarathonThe time has come for another rendition of the one and only Niagara Falls International Marathon. Beginning in 1974, this truly unique and special event showcases marathon runners from around the world participating in a 26.2 mile cross-border pursuit. That’s right! This is the only marathon in the world that starts in one country and finishes in another. The event takes place on Sunday, October 25th, 2009 @ 10am. The competition starts by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and continues for 4 miles throughout the majestic parkways of beautiful Buffalo. The participants will then cross the Peace Bridge into the historic old town of Fort Erie, Ontario, where they then follow the Niagara River Parkway and finish at the magnificent Niagara Falls.
