Get your run on!

The annual and extremely popular Dexter-Ann Arbor Run is scheduled for Sunday, May 31. The event, which features a half marathon, 10k, Amica 5k and Kids Run, is sponsored by Dave’s Performance Footgear, Ann Arbor Track Club, Ann Arbor Running Company and Run Toledo.

Half Marathon

Since 1974, the beautiful shaded backwoods of the Huron River region provide the setting for the annual Ann Arbor Track Club’s, Dexter to Ann Arbor Run.

Choose from a 5k, 10k, or the classic half marathon, which takes runners on a scenic, gently rolling 13.1 mile course.

Start the half marathon in the picturesque town of Dexter, Michigan and head east along Huron River Dr. to the big finish in historic downtown Ann Arbor. — a Road Runners Club of America’s top Runner-friendly Community in the United States.

10K & Amica 5K

The Road Runners Club of America 10K State Championship is great for serious runners and not-so-serious runners (and walkers) who want a little more than a 5K, but not quite the whole half. This 10K (6.2 mile) course features some of the most beautiful stretches of Huron River Drive.

The 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk is a great way for the whole family to take part in the Dexter-Ann Arbor Run. This course now features a unique start line and point-to-point course.

All events finish in downtown Ann Arbor on North Main St. and shuttles are available to the 5k and half start lines.
