This is an international race and requires a valid travel document. For more information or if you have questions about your entrance admissibility to Canada visit our “Link to requirements” page here.
All participants in the Adaptive Athletes Division must be 16 years of age or older.
You must be able to complete the race in 6.5 hours from the time the Last Chance Pacer crosses the start line. We will close the marathon course at 2 p.m.
The Last Chance Pacer will travel at the average pace needed to cross the finish line at 6.5 hours. Your progress will be monitored throughout the race. If you fall significantly behind the Last Chance Pacer, you will be given fair warning to pick up the pace. If you can’t keep pace, you will be required to board a bus following the pacer to be transported back to the finish area.
The 2024 Marathon route is one of the only truly international courses in the world! A showcase of Detroit featuring iconic neighborhoods like the Woodbridge neighborhood, the District Detroit, Eastern Market, the Dequindre Cut and a finish line at the foot of Campus Martius. (All courses will require municipal approval and USATF measurement.)
