Event Description

Join us for a meaningful Juneteenth 5K Run/Walk as we celebrate freedom, unity, and resilience. This empowering event aims to honor the significance of Juneteenth by bringing our community together through a spirited run. Lace up your shoes and stride with purpose as we commemorate the emancipation of enslaved individuals and embrace the spirit of equality and justice.

The 5k Run/Walk will be a great addition to the 8th annual Juneteenth Parade.

You don't run? It's cool. You can walk. Bring your strollers, bring your friends and family.

In addition to walking/running here are a few other ways you can get involved:

  • Sponsor the event (sponsorship packages will be available)
  • Volunteer (passing out waters and snacks)
  • Crowd Support (holding signs, encouraging runners)
  • Spread the word


  • Family-Friendly: Bring the whole family for a day of fitness, fun, and community spirit. Strollers and leashed pets are welcome!
  • Community Support: Every step you take supports a worthy cause, with proceeds from the event benefiting Juneteenth In Detroit 501(c)(3).
  • Music & Entertainment: Keep your energy high with live music, DJ sets, and interactive activities for participants of all ages.
  • Post-Race Celebration: Celebrate your achievement with refreshments, snacks, and the camaraderie of fellow participants at our post-race gathering.

Whether you’re running for a personal best, to honor a loved one, or simply to make a difference in your community, the Juneteenth Detroit 5k is your chance to be a part of something truly special. So, gather your friends, rally your family, and join us as we race towards hope, one step at a time!
