Please join us on Sunday April 28th for the inaugural Power of Niagara 5K Run/Walk! This is a fast and flat course on closed roads. Great place to PR! The race is being co-sponsored by the NU Outdoors Club and NU Finance Club.

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 (CLICK HERE TO 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.
