Ann Arbor Marathon Is Coming on May 20th (So, Lace Up Your Shoes)
Do you love to run? Well, it is time to break out your best running gear and start making your reservations for a trip to Ann Arbor.
We are just a little over a month away from the Probability Ann Arbor Marathon, one of the biggest annual health and wellness events in Ann Arbor. The marathon will start at Iconic Michigan Stadium at 7:30 am on May 20th (just a few short miles from your Ann Arbor lodging).
The Marathon is a qualifier for both the Boston and New York marathons. Half and Full marathon participants get a really nice long-sleeved short to commemorate the race experience and all finishers are awarded a really cool looking medal. There are awards for the top five male and female finishers and awards for different age groups.
Domino’s will provide pizza throughout and after the race.
In addition to the marathon itself, you could choose to participate in the 5k run, the 10k run, or the half-marathon as well (and both the 5k and the 10k are walkable). If you park at Pioneer High School you will be able to catch a shuttle back from the finish line at Elbel field back to your car (the shuttle will run from 9 am to 2 pm).
If you come in early, there will be a Health and Wellness Expo on May 19th starting at 12:00 noon. The Expo will be at 2/42 Community Center in Ann Arbor which is located at 648 Wagner Road in Ann Arbor. At the Expo, you will be able to interact with vendors from companies like Orange Fitness and Probability Physical Therapy.
