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!

19-Mile Spring Marathon Training Run

Training for an April or May marathon? Tired of lonely long training runs? This date fits perfectly for many planned 19 or 20-mile training runs. Train with 1000 of your closest friends, with aid stations, portable toilets, and fans along the way.

This 19-mile training run is a combo of the Ann Arbor 10K and the Ann Arbor 13.1. You will earn all of the race swag, including the long-sleeved T-shirt, finisher’s medal, and post-race food and 26.2 Brew!  It will be the most fun you have had on a training run – ever!

Participants in this division will get EVERYTHING that all race participants get (swag, food, beer, chip timing, etc.) excluding overall and age-group awards as this is a training run, not a race.

We will be donating a portion of each entry fee to one of these four fabulous featured charities.
You will have the opportunity to choose where you would like yours to go during the registration process.



  • Race chip timing with “almost” immediate race results
  • Participant tracking
  • 26.2 and 13.1 Participants: a very cool, long-sleeved tech race shirt* 
  • 10K and 5K Participants: a super-soft, high-quality race shirt*
  • Our best finisher’s medal ever
  • Delicious post-race snacks

*shirt sizes not guaranteed if you register after March 10

epic races has the ann arbor track club as pacers for the probility ann arbor marathon

Promoting fitness, friendship, and fun for all ages for 50 years, we are grateful to the  Ann Arbor Track Club for providing pacers for this event. Choose your goal and they will help you hit the mark! The following paces will be supported:

Marathon 5K – pacers for :21, :24, :27, :30, :33, and :36 total finish time

Marathon 10K – pacers for :42, :48, :54, 1:00, 1:06, and 1:12 total finish time

Half Marathon – pacer for 1:30 total finish time

Full Marathon – pacers for 3:30, 3:45, 4:00, 4:15, 4:30, 4:45, and 5:00 total finish time.

Not sure what pace to run? Check out the pace predictor here to help choose your group.

Interested in being a pacer?
In order to be a pacer, you must have extensive running experience and plan to run a pace at least 2 minutes per mile slower than your typical race pace. For more information, please contact Brian Harreld at


We will offer an early start for those who are walking or running a pace that will take more than 6 hours. If you choose an early start, you must start at 6 A.M. sharp, you may not start between 6 – 7:30 A.M.

Please understand that the course will not officially open until the official start time of 7:30 A.M. This means that the police will not be at the street crossings, the volunteers will not be out, and the aid stations will not be open until that time. You will need to have a light on your clothing and if you think you will need hydration in the first 1.5 hours, please carry that with you. You can dispose of it at an aid station when they open if you don’t want to carry it the whole way.

The course will be marked so you will easily be able to follow the course, but it will be a good idea to be familiar with it and carry a map as well.

If you are interested in this option, please fill out this form.

Part 2: Race Day

Each relay leg runner will get an official race bib that does not have a timing chip. All members must wear it on the outside of their top. Each team will receive ONE timing belt with one team bib. This will be buckled around the active runner and will be passed to each team member. Teams will receive individual and total times.

There will be no transportation to the relay transfer points, but there will be parking.

Leg #1 (7.05 miles)
Begins at the official start line.
After your leg, you will need a team member (presumably runner #3 who dropped off runner #2 will drive you back to the start/finish area.)
We recommend bringing a towel, “sponge bath” essentials, and dry clothing so you can be comfortable to cheer your teammates to the finish.

Leg #2 (6.05 miles)
You will park at Gallup Park and do a 0.5 “warm-up” from parking to the transfer point. We will have a heated tent here.
As suggested to relay leg #1: We recommend bringing a towel, “sponge bath” essentials, and dry clothing so you can be comfortable to cheer your teammates to the finish.

Leg #3 (7.05 miles)
Same as leg #1. See instructions for leg #1.
EXCEPT ….after your leg, you will need a team member (presumably runner #1 who is now dry, rested, and comfortable and dropped off runner #4 will drive you back to the start/finish area.)
As suggested to the others: We recommend bringing a towel, “sponge bath” essentials, and dry clothing so you can be comfortable to cheer your teammates to the finish.

Leg #4 (6.05 miles)
Same as leg #2, you will park at Gallup Park and do a .5 “warm-up” to the transfer area. We will have a heated tent here. (See map above.)
As suggested to the others: We recommend bringing a towel, “sponge bath” essentials, and dry clothing so you can be comfortable to cheer your teammates to the finish.
When you are approaching the finish line, we hope that your teammates will join you to the finish where you will all receive your well-deserved medals because there is no “I” in TEAM!
