Celebrate a day for all women — Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 13, 2018 — by joining your mothers, sisters, daughters, your entire sisterhood in the Suburban Chevrolet Arbor Goddess 5K and showing Ann Arbor how truly divine you are. You can even race with your daughter or mother on our USATF-certified 5K course in the Mother-Daughter category or add a grandmother or granddaughter for our Three Generations of Women category of fabulous females (participants must compete in the 5K for these divisions)! Want a shorter distance in which to showcase your athletic abilities? We have an untimed, non-competitive one-mile fun run option as well. Create a social team of your family members, co-workers, neighbors, or friends and enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow females as you wind your way through the city’s scenic downtown district to the finish line. Whatever your age or ability may be, you know you can do this.
While this is a day to celebrate goddesses of all generations, we also welcome gods (husbands, brothers, fathers, sons, grandfathers, and more), as long as they support our goddesses and this very vital cause (awards are just for the ladies, guys!).

Unchangeable plans for Mother’s Day with your mom? Not a problem. Sleeping in on this special day? That’s fine, too. You can now participate in the Suburban Chevrolet Ann Arbor Goddess 5K as a virtual racer! You’ll receive the same sweet swag that our race-day participants receive, and you can even join your friends who’ll be physically present on a team or create your own team of virtual runners/walkers! Simply pick a date to run or walk, then enjoy your virtual race anywhere, indoors or outdoors. There’s no need to “prove” your race to us, but it would be awesome if you could upload pictures and share your experience on our 2018 Suburban Chevrolet Ann Arbor Goddess Virtual 5K Facebook event page or tag us on your tweets. Your 3.1 miles must be completed by Sunday, May 13. To become a virtual racer, select the “Virtual Race” option when you register for the Suburban Chevrolet Ann Arbor Goddess 5K. Your shirt, medal, and other goodies will be sent to you approximately two weeks after the race. Please register no later than two weeks before race date to be guaranteed your shirt size. The deadline to register for our Virtual Goddess is be Sunday, April 29, 2018. We look forward to seeing you… in spirit!
Please note: Epic Races does not ship swag to Canada or internationally. If you are a resident of Canada or another country and wish to participate in an Epic Races virtual event, please provide us with a U.S. shipping address.
