New for 2018!

Announcing our newest event, the 1-Mile! This competitive race will be timed and will offer runners and walkers an opportunity to join us for Detroit’s Marathon Weekend! Whether you’re testing your speed and strength and going all out, or just up for a one mile jog, this race is for you!

Choose Your Category

The Competitive 1-Mile will have separate categories during registration which will separate participants into different waves. For those who are not competing for prize money, just select the Open/All category.  The categories include:

  • Speeder (Pro/Elite)*
  • Strider (Male Masters, Age 40+)
  • Sprinter (Female Masters, Age 40+)
  • Runner (Open/All, Age 18+)
  • Harrier (Age 13-17)**

*Pro/Elite category runners will be asked to verify pace and/or projected finish time in August 2018.

**Participants age 12 and under are able to run the Kids Fun Run with a parent/guardian. Since the Competitive 1-Mile is a timed event, only participants with a valid bib on will be allowed on the course.

The Course

Our Competitive 1-Mile course is flat and fast and sure to be speedy. Starting in William G. Milliken State Park, the course has four turns and a straight-away to the finish. Click here to view the course map, or click here to view more course and event maps.
