We have returned to racing!

The mission of Epic Races is to professionally manage safe, fun, and rewarding multi-sport and endurance events that appeal to beginner through elite athletes, raise money and awareness for important causes, and make each participant feel like a champion.

To keep you all safe, we follow the most up-to-date health and safety guidelines for the state of Michigan.  You can find them here.

Choose from the 5K (Live or virtual) or the 1-Mile Fun Run…

Celebrate women — by joining your mothers, sisters, daughters, your entire sisterhood in the Arbor Goddess Run and showing Ann Arbor how truly divine you are. You can even race with your daughter or mother in the Mother-Daughter category or add a grandmother or granddaughter for our Three Generations of Women category of fabulous females.

Looking for less distance? Participate in the untimed One-Mile Fun Run. Create a team of your family members, co-workers, neighbors, or friends and enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow women as you tackle this run. 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 these very vital causes (awards are just for the ladies, guys!)

All events are walker-friendly!

Deferrals and Transfers
We offer a liberal transfer and deferral policy.  You may defer your race entry to the following year up until 3 weeks before race day.  You may transfer your race to another person up until race morning.  See instructions on how to do this and more about our policies in our FAQs.
