Thank you to everyone who signed up!  

Looking forward to seeing you at the inaugural    I RAN THE D on April 23rd. 

Start at the Big Tiger and Finish running around the Comerica Park field!


In 2017, we plan to celebrate the power of April in the D with our first annual “I RAN THE D” 5K run/walk Presented by FOX Sports Detroit.  There is no better way to celebrate Detroit sports and the Detroit Lions, Pistons, Red Wings and Tigers than by gathering together during the month of April to rally around our iconic Ford Field, Comerica Park, and state-of-the-art-under-construction Little Caesars Arena.   Let’s mark an amazing month in Detroit sports by taking a run through our city streets.  The event will start at the Big Tiger and finish ceremonially on Comerica Park field….
