Big House 5K "Trail to the Victors"

Finish on the 50 yard line!!!

Big House 5K: Trail to the Victors Big House 5K is a new running event for the regional Midwest area. The University of Michigan's rich athletics tradition began in 1865 and continues to this day, with the Wolverines claiming more than 50 national championships in 12 sports. Our students, faculty and staff also regularly participate in dozens of intramural, club sport and fitness activities.

The race, owned and managed by the University of Michigan Athletic Department working in conjunction with the Ann Arbor Track Club, will coincide with the spring football weekend. The race will begin near the Stephen M. Ross Athletic Campus and finish on the field of the revered University of Michigan football stadium, the Big House.

In 2014, $12 from each registration will go to support six local, non-profit beneficiaries. Any additional proceeds (after expenses) will also benefit the selected group of local non-profits.

On Saturday afternoon (April 5), we invite you to pick up your race packet at the main entrance to Crisler Center from noon - 7 p.m. Before or after picking up your packet, we encourage you to head over to the Big House for the Michigan football spring game, take in the baseball or softball series at the Wilpon Complex, or witness Michigan lacrosse in action at Michigan Stadium. Race day events include a 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run. The 5K is a USATF certified course.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
