Most of the below information is for the 2022 Competitive 1-Mile. The 2023 approach will be similar, so we’re keeping the 2022 information live for context. But please check back for updates as registration opens and the marathon weekend approaches.

Registration for 2023 events begins at 12:01 a.m. Jan. 1. Register here.  Ensure lowest prices by registering early!

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

The course

The 2022 course is on and near the east Detroit riverfront.

Important note: Due to unforeseen construction on the course, Competitive 1-Mile has been redesigned from the originally announced route. The new route has been USATF certified, and the correct course map is below.

All Saturday races will now share the same start/finish lines, which will be on Atwater St. between Rivard St. and Riopelle St.

Parking

We encourage you to arrive early to have enough time to park and head to the start line. If you’re looking for parking nearby, please check out garages near the Renaissance Center or street lots west of Rivard St. If you’re using street parking near the course, please make sure you’re not parking on the course, otherwise your vehicle will be towed. Greektown and the Financial District are also popular areas for parking, and a nice walk down to the riverfront.

Prizes

Place Elite (Both Men & Women) Masters Over 40+ (Both Men & Women)
1st $350 $250
2nd $175 $125
3rd $100 $75
