News » Important Updates for 2013

As we begin to finalize the details of race day, please be aware of following changes as it relates to your particular event and overall safety.

Course Changes
We made a few modifications to the course this year to avoid construction projects planned or underway near the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel in Windsor, Cobo Center and the M1 Light Rail project along Woodward Ave near Campus Martius. Take a look at the updated map and get familiar with our new course prior to race day.

U.S.-Only Half-Marathon Changes

Both the start time and location of the U.S.-Only Half-Marathon have been updated from last year. Thanks to runner feedback and in order to clear the area due the Detroit Lions home game, the start time is now 10:00 AM. The Start Line has also adjusted back one block remaining on E. Congress between Brush St. and Randolph St.
