A few weeks ago, Dave and I walked our 4th Detroit Free Press Half-Marathon! The course for the half-marathon (and obviously the marathon too) is very unique, you start by crossing the Ambassador Bridge to Canada walk about 5 miles and then cross back to the USA through the tunnel! And the shirts and medals this year were great! Everyone that registers gets a long sleeved tech shirt and everyone that finishes gets a sweet medal.
If you’re interested in walking or running the half-marathon/full marathon, they usually start early bird sign-ups in January. Dave and I are going to take at least a year off, but we can totally recommend this unique experience and it’s always great exercise to have a big goal like finishing a half-marathon to keep you moving!
