You’ll fly around the official Detroit Grand Prix track at this one-of-a-kind 5K!

Come join us for the once-a-year opportunity to experience the Detroit Grand Prix course just like the race car drivers do. Runners & walkers will start from the Official Detroit Grand Prix starting line and experience all 13 turns and a run down Pit Lane before crossing under the checkered flag in the shadow of the grand stand.

The Course
The Grand Prix 5000 is the only event that allows you to experience the Detroit Grand Prix course just like the drivers do. The course is flat, fast, wide and flawlessly smooth, perfect for a new Personal Best. Each of the 13 Grand Prix turns are engineered for high powered racing machines so you won’t need to worry about these turns slowing you down!

Participants will start at the Official Detroit Grand Prix starting line in view of the downtown Detroit skyline. You’ll make your first pass through Pit Row before carving your way through turns 2-13. You’ll make one more pass through Pit Row before you hit turn 1 and the straight-away to the finish.
