Niagara Ultra 50 K photo race report

Niagara Ultra 50 K
Saturday, June 16, 2018
Ultra/full marathon #61

Seventh consecutive year running the 50 K race. Very scenic route along the Niagara River trail. First 10 K cloudy; rest was sunny - not good as the temperature went up and running in the sun. Loyal volunteers at every 5 K hydration station as well as on the route.

Chip time = 7:42:25

Start line - all half marathon, full marathon, 50 K, 100 K sold out!

Amazing view

Half marathon turnaround

Steep incline; good news is out-and-back course  so will be downhill on return. 

Steep incline for 1 K; very scenic!
