Event Details

RUNdetroit's Flight Club is hosting a non-competitive 18 mile group run along the Detroit Free Press Marathon Course.  The route will feature miles 10-26 of the Marathon course followed by part of mile 1 and 2.

The run will leave from the Green Dot Stables parking lot promptly at 8:10am on Sunday September 8th.  The roads we are running on WILL be open to regular auto traffic so we will be running on side walks/pedestrian paths.  Staffed water stations will be provided approximately every 4 miles with energy gels & hyrdration drink around the halfway mark.  Port-a-potties will be provided at the start/finish.  Restrooms along the course are limited but will be marked on the course map (Click here for route map).  You can download the course to your Garmin device HERE. We will provide Pace Leaders at these pace per mile intervals 9:00, 9:30, 10:00, 11:00 and may add more depending on RSVPs. For safety reasons all participants must be able to complete this run in 3 hours 45 minutes or less (a 12:30 pace).

Green Dot Stables will be opening at 10 (for drinks) and 11 (for food) for us.  They have an excellent menu of food (including vegetarian options) and alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks.  Please thank them for the use of their parking lot by carbing up here after your run!

There is a $10 registration fee for this event.  The entry fee goes towards the port-a-potties at the start/finish and the aid stations on the course. This event is capped so register before it sells out.  

There is no day-of registration
.  Online registration closes at 12pm on Friday 9/6 unless the event sells out beforehand.

All attendees will be entered to win a pass to our FREEP VIP Area. The VIP Area includes private port-a-potties, private gear check, warming area, massage and more all within 2 blocks of the International Half/Full starting line! If you don't win you can buy sauconylogoyour way in by spending $140 on in-stock Saucony merchandise at RUNdetroit between Aug 25th-October 15th. More info HERE. Winners will be randomly selected at the 18 Miler and announced before the start of the event.



I'd like to volunteer to lead one of your pace groups.  What's involved?
This event is not a race so your job will be more casual than that of the race day pacers -- we won't even make you carry a big sign.  All we ask is that you run your pace consistently for 18 miles and keep your group on the course (so its important that you memorize the route map Here!).  Volunteers will get free entry to this training run, tons of thank yous and possibly some sweaty hugs. Email to sign up.

What if I'm running the Half Marathon and don't want to do the full 18 miles? What if I want to run more than 18 miles?
You're more than welcome to run shorter or longer than the planned route however its your responsibility to review the map and know where to add or subtract from the 18-mile course.


Is there a time cut off?
Yes, due to the temperatures in learly September and limited shade on the course all participants must be able to complete this 18 mile run in 3 hours 45 minutes or less. This works out to be a 12:30 pace per mile.

What are my parking options?

There are about 30 spaces in the Green Dot Parking lot and lots of free street parking.  We encourage you to carpool to the event.  While this area is generally very quiet on a Sunday morning, like anywhere else, we recommend that you do not leave any vaulables in your car. 

Are we running into Canada?

Nope.  We are not able to use that part of the course for this event.  This event will be on the US portion of the course only. 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?


Can I register the day of the event?
NO. There is no day of registration. If you want to participate you must register prior to 12pm on Friday 8/24.

What is the refund policy?
This event is non-refundable.

Where can I contact the organizer with any other questions?
