Perfect for men, women and kids of all fitness levels, the annual Ann Arbor Marathon gives everyone an opportunity to lace up and hit the streets. The track winds its way through some of Ann Arbor’s most well-known landmarks, starting at University of Michigan Stadium, winding through the UM campus before finishing downtown. Full marathon, half marathon, 10K and 5K options are available. Full and half marathon runners will also get to glide alongside the Huron and run past Nichols Arboretum. For kids 14 and under, there is a 100 meter kid’s dash that takes place on Main St. Runners who can’t make the date but still want to participate can take part in a virtual half marathon by running or walking 13.1 miles and uploading their story to the Ann Arbor Marathon facebook page. Prior to the event on Saturday, the Health and Wellness Expo takes place at the University of Michigan Indoor Track.
