Detroit Riverfront Run to support the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy | June 2020

For the safety of our visitors, the much-anticipated Detroit Riverfront Run is going Virtual in 2020!  We’re asking you to support the riverfront from the comfort of your community and join us in #BeingApartTogether.

Park space is needed more than ever during these unprecedented times, so your support will help us continue our mission of keeping the Detroit RiverWalk and Dequindre Cut clean, safe and beautiful.

The Detroit Riverfront Run includes both a 5K and a 10K run/walk. All participants will receive a performance T-shirt, a commemorative medal and a bib, that will be mailed out the first week of June.

Wondering how to participate in a Virtual Run? 

Step 1 – Register for the Detroit Riverfront Run!

Step 2 –  Your shirt, bib, & finisher medal will be mailed to you the first week of June.

Step 3 –  Run or Walk your Virtual 5K or 10K  anytime/anywhere between June 15 – July 15.    (Ex. treadmill, favorite park, on the RiverWalk on a different day)

Step 4 – Log your results – a website with instructions to submit your results will be emailed to you the second week of June.

Step 5 – Share your photos online and use the #DetroitRiverfrontRun2020! There will not be race awards for the virtual race, but we’ll randomly select 10 participants to receive a special gift for sharing their virtual race photos!
