The much-anticipated Detroit Riverfront Run is back in person for 2022! After a virtual race in 2020 and no race in 2021, we're asking you to come out and support the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, a place that was beloved by our community during the pandemic.

This year’s Detroit Riverfront Run features a 5k & 10k run/walk and will be held on June 11, 2022. The race route will showcase the Detroit Riverwalk and Dequindre Cut. All participants will receive a performance T-shirt, a commemorative medal, post race snacks and other goodies to be announced. Registration for the 5K run/walk is $35 per participant, 10K is $45 per person or virtual race is $45 per person before May 1. After May 1st registration fees increase to $40 for the 5k, $50 for the 10k or $50 for the virtual race.
