Detroit Is Not A Sprint

The marathon may happen during the third weekend of October, but the journey brings out the best in people year-round.

Join the thousands who run for their own reasons and support each other every step of the way. Ready for the full 26.2? Our course will take you through two countries. If the half is more your style, we have two unique courses to choose from. With a group of friends or family or both, you can participate as a relay team that relies on each other. And for those who want to ease in, we have the 5K and Kids Fun Run at the RiverWalk.
