On-site registration is not available for this event. Please note all information below is 2018 information. If any of the information should change, 2019 information will be available closer to race day.
All participants of the Detroit Free Press/TCF Bank Marathon must be 16 years of age or older by race day to participate.
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.
