Race Capacity

Note: Should we reach capacity before registration is over, we reserve the right to close them without notice. These events do sell out, so you’ll want to take advantage of reduced rates and guaranteed participation by registering as soon as possible. Also note that on-site registration is not available for any event.

Location

The American Home Fitness 5K starts near the DNR Outdoor Adventure Center and William G. Milliken State Park and Harbor, along the Detroit RiverWalk.

The Course

Our 5K course will take participants along the Detroit Riverwalk, past Milliken State Park/Harbor, past Chene Park and through the historic Rivertown Warehouse District before finishing in front of the DNR Outdoor Adventure Center.

Walkers will be asked to line up at the back of the start, so that runners may start first. This is for the safety and happiness of all!

Runners and walkers of any age and/or ability are welcome to participate in the celebration of fun and fitness. Because of safety concerns strollers, bicycles, roller-blades and skateboards are not permitted in any of our events, including the 5K.

PLEASE NOTE: In the event of road closures due to construction, we have detours planned and ready to go. Stay tuned to our website, Facebook and Twitter for updates.
