I have some exciting news to share with you all! I have been selected to be a Women Run the D Blog Ambassador for The American Home Fitness Detroit Women’s Half Marathon and 5k.
Not familiar with the Detroit Women’s Half Marathon and 5k? It is a race created by women for women (but men can participate too, of course) that takes place on September 20th on Belle Isle. Participants of both races will receive an amazing finishers medal, a super soft race shirt, a goodie bag of items from sponsors, great post race food and race chip timing.
Another great perk of this race and one that I think all races should offer is free race photos! I can’t express how much I LOVE this. Race photos can be very expensive and I often don’t purchase them because I can’t rationalize the cost but that won’t be an issue at this race because I will get all my photos for FREE!
I’ve decided to run the half marathon because….. well why not?! As you can see from the course map below, I will be looping Belle Isle 2.25 times to get all 13.1 miles in. I have also included the 5k map below as well, if that distance is more of an interest to you.
The expo for the race is on September 19th at the Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center from 10am-4pm. The expo will have various running vendors as well as an opportunity to participate in Paint and Pour, get your hair braided or nail polish changed and much more! I will be at the Women Run the D Blogger Ambassador booth so make sure you stop in and say hi!
In addition to the expo, the race also offers a pre-race pasta dinner and Pajama Party Yoga!
