The 2022 Marathon route includes some of the most dramatic improvements to the course in the race’s 45-year history. First, we’re back to running internationally after a two-year pause. Plus, we’ve added signature Detroit features 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.)
