This is the second time that I ran this race. I was disappointed to find out that the course change this year. The race originally started in Buffalo and ended in Niagra falls. This year it was an out and back along the Niagara parkway. The original race had lots of spectators in Buffalo and as you crossed over in to Canada. This years race had very little spectators. The expo was very small and only a few vendors. The weather was not the greatest for running as there was a strong headwind from the turn around point to the falls. Although I probably wouldn’t run this race again it does have one of the best finish lines.
