A portion of this event’s proceeds will benefit our featured charity, the American Heart Association: Go Red for Women.
The American Home Fitness Detroit Women’s Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K event was created by women for women. All women, of all ages, of all abilities. First-time racers and experienced marathoners. The young and the young at heart. Join your sisters on beautiful Belle Isle State Park on Sunday, September 16, 2018 and celebrate your strength, your beauty, your inner grace… everything that makes you the goddess you are!
The American Home Fitness Detroit Women’s Half Marathon, 10K, & 5K is walker friendly!
The Detroit Women’s Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K also features a RIM Foundation Handcycle Division in our 5K, so that Goddesses of all abilities can participate in our event! The Handcycle Division will offer both Para and Quad categories, and participants will start with the half-marathon competitors.
Friends and Family
In addition to our three distances, Women Run the D features two special family-awards divisions and Team Awards.
Participating in these divisions will NOT preclude you from the regular age-group awards. These divisions are in addition to the age-group awards, so be sure to sign up when you register: one mother and one daughter for the Mother/Daughter division, and one grandmother, one mother, and one daughter for the Three Generations of Women award (note: all family-awards participants must be racing the same distance, eg. everyone doing the 5K).
Team Categories (registered groups of 5 or more participants – friends, families, clubs, or corporate groups)
Awards will be presented to the top 3 registered teams in each category. Teams are scored by averaging the times of the entire team. All team members must participate in the same distance race.

You’ve decided to run the 5K or 10K… or perhaps take on the half, but your motivation to practice isn’t quite where you’d like it to be. Relax! This is perfectly normal, especially when we can be so easily overwhelmed by our family and work responsibilities. Our sponsor, Hanson’s Running Shop, is ready to help! Join the Hanson’s gang every Wednesday at 6:30 PM for a FREE group run from their Utica store. All levels and abilities are welcome! For more information about training runs, check out the Hanson’s web site.
