NIAGARA FALLS, ON--(Marketwired - Mar 12, 2015) - There are races for good causes, and then there is the Red Bull Wings for Life World Run, which takes the concept of philanthropy and, well, runs with it. Set to occur at 35 different sites on six continents at the same time, this race will have thousands of runners pounding the pavement to raise money for spinal-cord injury research. Niagara Falls has been selected as Canada's race site, and the Courtyard Niagara Falls is doing its part -- through sponsorship, incentives and more - to make sure runners can go the distance.

Scheduled for May 3, 2015 at 11 a.m. UTC, Wings for Life is one of the most exciting things for locals and visitors to do in Niagara Falls, Ontario this year. The race is open to runners of every ability as well as wheelchairs, and it is timed to begin at the same moment around the world. This means some runners will be starting at night and others during the day for a race unlike any other.

Another unique feature is the race's lack of a finish line. Runners simply run until the Catcher Car, which departs 30 minutes after the race participants do, glides past them to indicate their race is over. The last man and woman left running are declared the Wings for Life champions.

For those travelling to participate in the race, only one of Niagara Falls' 4-star hotels can make the experience an unequivocal win: the Courtyard Niagara Falls. This sponsoring property will offer a 10% discount on all accommodations to participants, as well as a 20% discount on all food at its two restaurants, The Keg Steakhouse + Bar and T.G.I. Friday's.

These promotions, however, represent just the beginning of what visitors can enjoy on property. The stylish contemporary décor feels in step with the modern conveniences available, like free Wi-Fi, a 24-hour business centre and a fitness centre. Luxurious enhancements like in-room whirlpools are available to those who want to relax sore muscles after a long run. And the hotel's location near Niagara Falls' casinos and Clifton Hill means there's plenty to do even after the race has been run.
