From Sunday, August 16, 2020 to Friday August 22, 2020, we have partnered up with Playmakers to give you the chance to win a new pair of running shoes!

Whether you’re training to run or walk with us virtually this October, or you think a new pair of kicks will be exactly what you need to kick-off your training, we hope you’ll join us in a little fun!

What is the contest?

While we are all still bummed that we will not be together this October at the start line, and we know that there is no substitute for running over the Ambassador Bridge at sunrise, we how that you will join us bring elements of our race to your own backyard!

All week we will be sharing race day pictures of different parts of the course and we want to see how you can recreate them. There will be six elements shared on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages Sunday through Friday. We hope this will inspire you to find pieces of Detroit in your own neighborhood and share them with us. Then starting on Friday we will be collecting submissions to win a new pair of running shoes! Three winners will be selected on Monday, August 24, 2020. But that is not all! These winners, and everyone else for that matter! Will have the opportunity to ask an expert every shoe question they have ever thought of to get into the perfect pair of shoes.
