Event Description

Sunday, October 18, 2020 at 7:00 AM

Age Restriction

All participants of the Detroit Free Press/TCF Bank Marathon must be 16 years of age or older by race day to participate.

The Course

Our marathon course offers international appeal, traversing both downtown Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, crossing the border at both the Ambassador Bridge and Detroit-Windsor Tunnel. You will run through historic neighborhoods, around beautiful Belle Isle, and along the spectacular RiverWalk.

With a wave start, smaller groups of participants are sent off at two-minute intervals beginning at 7:00 AM, which eases congestion in those early miles. Groups are based on the projected pace indicated on the registration form, so an accurate response is necessary.

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.

International Requirements

The Marathon division is an international event crossing U.S. and Canadian borders twice. It is a privilege and an honor to use the Ambassador Bridge and the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel. Do not drop articles of clothing, water bottles, tissue or paper cups as you run across these prestigious landmarks.
