Detroit Free Press Marathon

The 2023 Marathon route includes some of the most dramatic improvements to the course in the race’s 46-year history. We’re back again to running internationally in 2023 and we’ve kept the additions of Detroit features like the Woodbridge neighborhood, the District Detroit, Eastern Market, the Dequindre Cut and a finish line at the foot of Campus Martius. (All courses will require municipal approval and USATF measurement.)
