Important update: The routes for Saturday races have changed

Published On: October 14th, 2022Categories: Latest News From Marathon HQ

Due to unforeseen construction on the course, the Competitive 1-mile and 5k races have been redesigned. The 1-mile and 5k have been USATF certified. 

The new course maps are below. All Saturday races will now share the same start/finish lines, which will be on Atwater St. between Rivard St. and Riopelle St. 

The new routes are in the same general area along the east riverfront.

Race start times remain the same.

Competitive 1-Mile: 8:30 a.m. 

5K: 8:50 a.m. 

Meijer Kids Fun Run: 10 a.m.


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.
