Take to the scenic streets of Ann Arbor on Sunday, March 26 for the 2017 Probility Ann Arbor Marathon, brought to you by Epic Races and Champions for Charity. With a variety of running events that appeal to all ages and abilities, you’ll find that the Probility Ann Arbor Marathon is your ideal early-spring race, whether you’re walking your first 5K or running your 50th marathon.
All distance events — marathon, half marathon, 10K, and 5K — start just outside one of Ann Arbor’s most memorable landmarks: the University of Michigan Stadium. From the Big House, participants run through downtown Ann Arbor, then wind their way through the panoramic 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. All races end with a spectacular finish right on Main Street.*
The Probility Ann Arbor Marathon has been endorsed by the Michigan Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health, and Sports. All events of the Probility Ann Arbor Marathon are part of both the Pure Michigan FITness Series and the 2017 Michigan Fitness Foundation Race Series Championship.

Since 1969, Ozone House has actively helped local young people lead safe, healthy, and productive lives through intensive intervention and prevention services, offering unique, high-quality housing and support programs and services that provide intervention, training, and assistance to runaway, homeless, and high-risk youth and their families. Through these support services, Ozone House helps youths develop essential life skills, improve their relationships, and enhance their self image so that they may realize their full potential for growth and happiness.
There are approximately 1,300 homeless youths in Washtenaw County. These resilient young people often move from one relative to another. They couch surf: sleeping on friends’ couches until they outstay their welcome, only to live on another friend’s couch for a short time, never acquiring the resources they need to find stability. Tragically, many endure trauma or exploitation in exchange for a place to sleep. Up to 40% of homeless youths identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, or Questioning. These youths are at higher risk than their peers for bullying, violence, exploitation, and discrimination.
Ozone House is available 24/7 to help youths get and stay out of these situations. Whether youths need shelter, housing, individual or family counseling, 1:1 support and life skills, a job, to enroll in school, or a hot meal, the door at Ozone House is always open. Please consider supporting Ozone House in this important work by making a donation during the registration process. Already registered? Click here to donate. For more information, visit the Ozone House web site.
