Event Details

Join us on Saturday, April 8th at Belle Isle's Flynn Pavilion for our fourth annual shoe Demo Day!
This event features all the major shoe brands in one place at one time with their fleet of demo shoes. Borrow a pair of shoes and take them for a half mile run or a ten mile run, its up to you.  Bring them back and try something else. You can test run in as many shoes as you like!  We'll also have Garmin GPS and nutrition options for you to try. Don't worry about pushy sales people, in fact, we don't even allow vendor sales at this event!

The first 500 to register (Early Birds!) will receive a Race Bib with tear off tabs that can be used to enter our raffle drawing (we're giving away a free a pair of new shoes from each brand!). Also, all Demo Day participants will receive a coupon for a Free Pro Tec foam roller or Orb Massage Ball (up to a $25 value) with the purchase of a pair of shoes at RUNdetroit through 5.31.17.

*** On Feb. 10, 2014 Belle Isle became a Michigan state park. As of January 1st 2015 all vehicles must have a Recreation Passport for island access.  If needed, you will be able to purchase a Pass for $11 on Belle Isle the day of the event. 
For more information on the Recreation Passport please visit the DNR website



Where is the Flynn Pavilion?


The Flynn Pavillion is located on the south side of Belle Isle overlooking Windsor. A handy map is here. 


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is plenty of parking at the Flynn Pavilion, but carpooling makes you awesome. 
See above for info on the Recreation Passport.


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

Nope, save a tree, we just need your name when you check in. 


What if I find a shoe I love, how can I purchase it?

You can check in with any RUNdetroit staff member at Demo Day and they we can check in-store availability for you or place a special order. 


How does the raffle work?

The first 500 people to register will receive a race bib with 3 tear off tabs. You can place your raffle tickets any of the raffle boxes you'd like. Really like one brand? Triple your odds by placing all three tickets in the same box. RUNdetroit will contact the winners and ask your preferred model, size and color. All winners will pick up thier items from RUNdetroit in the weeks following Demo Day.
