The 2020 course maps: 

The 2020 Detroit Riverfront Run has gone virtual so the course is whatever you make it. We suggest using Map my run to make a route in your own community. We’ll provide a few route options in late May for those of you who want to do the virtual race using the RiverWalk and Dequindre Cut.

Race Information:

1. What if I still want to run/walk on the RiverWalk?

We’re asking you to choose any day in June if you want to use the RiverWalk for your Virtual Race. For safe physical distancing, please only run/walk maintain 6 feet between you and other guests and wear a face mask if possible.

2. Where is Parking?

Parking has been limited on the Detroit RiverWalk, as we deal with trying to increase the physical distance between visitors. Street parking is available on Atwater Street and the surrounding park areas. The parking lots at Cullen Plaza, Gabriel Richard Park and Mt. Elliott will have intermittent closures to maintain capacity.
