Power of Niagara 5K Run Walk

Niagara University, NY

The race on Sunday April 23, 2023 @10am has been canceled. Check back in 2024.

This is a fast and flat course on closed roads. Great place to PR!

The race is student-organized and will provide our student event team with hands-on planning and practical experiences. The race supports and is co-sponsored by two of Niagara’s student organizations: NU Outdoors Club and NU Sports Management Association.

Race organizers have designed a great 5K course that will take runners through the beautiful NU campus, and the NY State Parks Reservoir Park paved trails before returning to the finish line in front of the Kiernan Center in the heart of the campus (VIEW MAP)

There will be one water station located along the course and bottled water will be provided to all participants at the finish line.
