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!

The Basics
>>A team of 2-4 runners will cover the entire 26.2 mile distance.
>>Each runner will run one leg of 6.05 or 7.05 miles. The team can have as few as 2 members competing. This will require that 2 team members run 2 legs.
>>All teams will be mixed. (Male/Female/All Ages)

As a Team Member:
>>You must know your team before signing up.
>>You are responsible for registering yourself, on time, for your correct team.

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!
