All participants of the Detroit Free Press Marathon must be 16 years of age or older by race day to participate.
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.)

With a wave start, participants are sent off at two-minute intervals beginning at 7 a.m., which eases congestion in those early miles. Groups are based on the projected pace indicated on the registration form, so an accurate response is necessary.
