    10 Mile Course

    The race will start at historic Atwater Brewery. The 10 mile course will quickly make its way to the riverfront where it will follow the Riverwalk greenway until it reaches Belle Isle Park. Runners will get a chance to see the sights of Belle Isle as they make a loop around the island. Athletes will then head back to Atwater Brewery where the fun really begins.

    There are five water stops on the course that will have both water and Gatorade. At the midway point stop you will be able to also get Gu Gels.

    Due to police and road closures everyone will be kept on a strict 16 minute per mile pace.  If runners fall behind this pace by mile 5 they will be asked to either take a ride back to the finish or to obey all traffic laws while they complete the course.

    5k Course

    This flat fast 5K course will spend most of its time on the Riverwalk greenway. The out and back course will allow athletes to see their competition after they make their turnaround! Athletes will finish to the sound of Motown music and the taste of the best beer in the region!
