About This Activity

This DAM 5k and 10k will take place at the Historic Fort Wayne, located near downtown Detroit. The run begins with a blast of a authentic Civil War cannon. Experience the sights and sounds dating back to the Civil War, while running a course around old military housing, barracks, and genuine cannon walls. Those of you that feel motivated enough can bring tour heaviest A.L.I.C.E. pack, ILBE, or Ruck Sack and move with intent along the course like your motivated Marine warfighters.

All race finishers will receive a commemorative 'finisher' medal with the Detroit Area Marines Logo on it.

After the race enjoy a walk through of the facility with your family and friends. A wonderful morning for the whole family.  Proceeds of the race go directly to the Detroit Area Marines.The race is family friendly, and a great way to support the present military, while preserving the past.
