Run for the Grapes Course Change

The race will now start and finish at Club Roma located at 125 Vansickle Rd in St. Catharines. “While we will miss the downtown excitement we were able to maintain much of the the original course and actually involve more of the farmland that makes this area unique” said Lyle Harris Race Director for the Subaru of Hamilton and Niagara Running Series.

“Its now truly a Run in the Grapes and we have eliminated one of the toughest hills on the course”

The race features a half marathon and 5K and will start and finish at Club Roma at 9am , the 5K will start start at 9:15.
