Take to the scenic streets of Ann Arbor on Sunday, March 26 for the 2017 Ann Arbor Marathon. With a variety of running events that appeal to all ages and abilities, you’ll find that the Ann Arbor Marathon is your ideal early-spring race, whether you’re walking your first 5K or running your 50th marathon.
All distance events — marathon, half marathon, 10K, and 5K — start just outside one of Ann Arbor’s most memorable landmarks: the University of Michigan Stadium. From the Big House, participants run through the vibrant streets of downtown Ann Arbor, then wind their way through the panoramic University of Michigan campus. The marathon and half marathon courses also encompass stretches along the Huron River and Gallup Park and through Nichols Arboretum before returning to campus and downtown. All races end with a spectacular finish right on Main Street. The Ann Arbor Marathon is USATF certified and serves as a qualifier for both the Boston and New York Marathons; we’re also the Road Runners Club of America State Championship Event for Michigan!
