Today hundreds sake to the streets of downtown Ann Arbor for the 2017 Probility Ann Arbor Marathon, brought to you by Epic Races and Champions for Charity.

This race is unique in that multiple distance events start at the same place, at the exact same time - marathon, half marathon, 10K, and 5K - 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.

Many participate in this race to raise money for charities they are passionate about.
