The Probility Ann Arbor Marathon offers a full marathon, half-marathon, 10K, and 5K.  The full marathon can be run as an individual or as a 4-person relay team.

All events start and finish in view of one of Ann Arbor’s most memorable landmarks, The Big House. Participants run through downtown Ann Arbor, then wind their way through the city’s streets and parks as well as the University of Michigan campus. The marathon and half marathon courses also encompass stretches along the Huron River and Gallup Park and through Nichols Arboretum before returning to campus and downtown. The full marathon is two loops.

The 10K is a true trail running going through Nichols Arboretum including the infamous “Hill”!

The 5K is a beautiful run through The University of Michigan’s campus with an exciting finish in view of The Big House!
