International race crossing US and Canadian borders twice - once via the Ambassador Bridge from Detroit to Windsor and once via the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel from Windsor to Detroit. Offering the ONLY underwater international mile in the world. Event starts at Comerica Park (home of the Detroit Tigers), runs through Corktown (an old Irish/Scottish settlement from the early 1800's), Mexicantown, the Windsor Riverfront, Belle Isle (a park within the City of Detroit), Indian Village (historical mansion district), Greektown and a 50-yard line Ford Field Finish (home of the Detroit Lions). Detroit is a music mecca and we provide plenty of local talent along the route. Water and Gatorade stations provided approximately every mile wit the exception of the bridge and tunnel - a GU station, spirit stations and more. Michelob Ultra will sponsor a finish line party with entertainment. The course is flat with the exception of the bridge and tunnel. (Please see web site with elevation chart.)
For directions, please see Ford Field or Comerica Park. Plenty of parking is available around the stadiums. The start and finish are blocks apart.
