Dexter-Ann Arbor Run heads to the starting line on May 3

It’s time to “Run the River!”

On Sunday, May 3, over 5,000 people will be running the scenic course along the Huron River between Dexter and Ann Arbor, in one of three distances of the Dexter Ann Arbor Run. Those numbers will include teams and athletes who are running to help build the B2B Trail!

HWPI/Karen’s Trail is honored to be a charity partner of the DXA2 Run for a second year in a row! We are grateful to the organizations and community leaders who are forming fundraising teams to support this important work. Funds raised from this event support the expansion of the B2B Trail, which means more safe pathways for training, commuting and recreation in our community.

Team members who raise $150 or more will be invited to a Karen’s Trail Team pre-race party, have access to team-sponsored training support, and will receive an exclusive 2020 race day shirt. If you are interested in joining a Karen’s Trail team or forming one of your own for the DXA2 run, please go to:

The 2020 DXA2 weekend kicks off with an Expo on Saturday May 30th that is open to the public. The DXAA run takes place on Sunday, May 31st with three race distances: a 5K, 10K and a half marathon. For more information about the race:

Not interested in running? Stay tuned for information about volunteering at our water stop. We look forward to cheering on our teams as they “Run the River” to build the B2B Trail!
