The 2023 Marathon route includes some of the most dramatic improvements to the course in the race’s 46-year history. We’re back again to running internationally in 2023 and we’ve kept the additions of 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.)

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.
