Because of safety concerns strollers, bicycles, roller-blades and skateboards are not permitted in any of our events, including the Meijer Kids Fun Run.


There are two options for parking:

  1. The Chene Parking Lot (2241 Atwater St., Detroit, MI 48207), on the corner of SW Corner of Chene and Franklin. This lot is free to all participants. However, access to this lot closes at 8:45am to secure the course (meaning access out of the lot will resume AFTER the races end).

All finishers of the Meijer Kids Fun Run will receive a medal.
