About This Activity

This year the Detroit Area Marines Foundation will again be hosting a 5K at the Historic Fort Wayne. Due to the outpour of responses from the 300+ runners we had in 2015 we felt this was the perfect venue for the foundation as well as the community.

This year we are going away from the 10K due to the amount of confusion on the course, but we are implementing a 1 miler for children.

We will be purchasing New Balance dri-fit race shirts and medals for all finishers, and of course the children will receive a medal and finisher shirt as well.

The Detroit Area Marines Foundation is a non profit organization that was created to help the local Marine Corps Reserve Marines stationed in Mt. Clemens, Mi. The foundation assist in any type of financial assistance as needed to these Marines with no interest loans. The foundation has been established for a few years, and this will be the third annual DAM 5K.

Please come out and support your local Marines, Challenge them and push them during the run, for they will be doing the same with every supporter on the course.

We look forward to running with you this year, we are expecting a bigger turn-out as well as plenty of activities (as long as the weather holds up).
