The fourth annual Big House 5K: Trail to the Victors presented by Toyota is an exciting running event for the regional Midwest area. Beyond intercollegiate athletics, our students, faculty and staff also regularly participate in dozens of intramural, club sport and fitness activities as well as actively support our local campus and county community.
The race, owned and managed by the University of Michigan Athletic Department working in conjunction with the Ann Arbor Track Club, will be held on Sunday, April 9, and will begin near the Stephen M. Ross Athletic Campus and finish on the field of the revered University of Michigan football stadium, the Big House.
In 2016, $115,000 was donated to six local, non-profit beneficiaries. We look forward to partnering with the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, Avalon Housing, Buddy-to-Buddy Volunteer Veteran Program, Hands Across The Water, Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance and the University of Michigan Comprehensive ALS Clinic. The intent of our race is to provide our beneficiaries a platform to raise awareness and funds toward their cause.
