Important Reminders for Martian Marathon & Color Run

PLEASE READ for important reminders about both the Martian Marathon (tomorrow) and the Color Run (today is the last day for early registration!)

Martian Marathon runners…Tomorrow (Saturday) is the big day!!!  The Martian Marathon will take place at Ford Field Park, rain or shine!  Howard Runners, please meet at 11:30am sharp for warming up, pictures and instructions.  Please look for the Howard sign.  Howard is the Blue Wave and start time is 12:00 noon.  Please make sure to wear the Martian Marathon shirt that will be going home today (if not already received).  Make sure your race bib information has been filled out in case of an emergency and is pinned to the front of the shirt.   If you have completed 25 miles so far please bring your race books so you can collect your prize!  We are excited and looking forward to seeing you tomorrow morning whether you are cheering us on or running!  Good luck Howard!

Any questions, please call Nasreen Hider at (313) 598-1166.


Color Run reminder:  Today is the last day for early registration. Early Registration guarantees you will receive a t-shirt, race bib, color packet, and raffle ticket. Due to the number of runners and volunteers we will have along the route, you MUST be registered to run to be allowed on the route. If you are not registered to run you WILL NOT be allowed to run along side your child/family. We will have over 20 traffic volunteers and police, along with over 30 volunteers for the water and color stations, and 160 runners as of now. A detailed email will be sent out later today to all registered runners going over packet pick-up and all event day information.
