First thing, I'm fine if this doesn't count as an FKT. I got to the starting point and there was construction going on with a fence blocking the start. I started at the construction fence just across the street from were the others started.
I ran this route unsupported and received no external support. I did refill my water at two rest rooms in parks along the way: in LaSalle Waterfront Park, and Whirlpool State Park.
This was a fun route. I enjoyed running from one great lake to another following the Niagara River. It definitely tested my will power the last 10k.
