I have wanted to do the Detroit Marathon for several years now. I finally moved back to the Midwest but found that the Detriot Marathon was on the same day as the Columbus Marathon every year. Although I love Columbus, I figure it's finally time to check out Detroit!

Use code "DETROITBRP17" and recieve 10% off your registration fee!

The draw of the marathon to me is that you get to cross over into Canada entering on Ambassador Bridge and exiting on Detroit-Windsor Tunnel. There is an additional bridge crossing aroung mile 19 where you add a few miles on Belle Isle.

Oh look, one of our favorite bridges to run on. #freepmarathon ❤️🏃‍♀️🏃#Repost @motorcityshooters ・・・ Congratulations to: @camera_jesus ————————————— Please visit their feed and show some Motor City love. ————————————— Thank you for following and using the hashtag #motorcityshooters ! ————————————— Selected By @misszee25 ————————————— Family : @kapturekid | @detroit_chiver | @krystins_world | @misszee25 ————————————— Community : @RawDetroit #RawDetroit @GramSlayers #GramSlayers ————————————— #Detroit #puremichigan #illgrammers #fatalframes #moodygrams #igersdetroit #agameoftones #DepictTheD #way2ill #createcommune #theimaged #heatercentral #all2epic #ARTOFVISUALS #aov #createcommune #fatalframes #justgoshoot #meistershots #gearednomad #shotzdelight #heatercentral #vzcomood #grittyside #exklusive_shot
