It's our 45th Running!

The in-person marathon may happen during the third weekend of October, but the journey brings out the best in people year-round.

Join the thousands who run for their own reasons and support each other every step of the way. Ready for the full 26.2? Our course will take you through two countries. If the half is more your style, we have two unique courses to choose from. With a group of friends or family or both, you can participate as a relay team that relies on each other. And for those who want to ease in, we have a 5K, Kids Fun Run and Competitive 1-Mile on Saturday!

Join us for The Motor City Challenge Series! Pick from a combination of races and challenge yourself to more than one race! Options include The Temptation, The Wonder and The Supreme!

  • Officially in for the @FreepMarathon international half! Can’t wait to cross this off my bucket list while running around my favorite city.

  • I Have ran 7 marathons. Two major cities of which where Boston and Philadelphia. To date this Marathon is my favorite one. ❤️ I may just have to break my tradition of never doing the same one twice. 😉
