Running Routes

Great Places To Run

The Welland Canals Parkway Trail is a paved recreational path beginning in the City of St. Catharines at Lake Ontario and ending at Lake Erie in Port Colborne. The trail can be taken full circle by heading from Port Colborne to Fort Erie, then back along the Niagara Parkway through Niagara Falls and N.O.T.L and then back along Lakeshore Road to St. Catharines.

Short Hills Provincial Park includes a number of marked trails that are great for running and offer beautiful scenery throughout the seasons. A run or walk in the park is always exciting and challenging and is one of our favorite Sunday morning trail running locations. Short Hills is also the location for our Club’s ‘Head for the Hills 10K’ race billed as ‘The Toughest 10K in Ontario’.
