Detroit has a multitude of new developments and hidden gems scattered around town that give this city the character we love. It’s not always easy to get around to exploring it all – so what better (and faster) way to experience that Detroit character, than while on a run?
Detroit’s very own Run Detroit running shop, located in the heart of Midtown, wants to give you the opportunity to do just that.
Their 3.101 10-week program is designed for someone who is not active and would like to run his or her first 5K. Created to increase endurance and strength, this program will ensure that you make it from the couch to the finish line.
The group will be training for this year’s Mustache Dache on November 7th, sponsored by Atwater Brewery in Detroit’s historic Rivertown district. If you’re unfamiliar with the Mustache Dache™, then it’s time to groom your stache and embrace your inner Mario and Luigi, because this is one hairy race.
The race takes place during the month of November as the national series helps Movember, the global men’s health charity to combat prostate and testicular cancer. All participants receive a t-shrt and mustache finisher’s medal, plus access to the post-race festivities with photo booth, costume contest, food and plenty more. Runners are strongly encouraged to proudly display their mustache – fake or real – in support of the cause.
Join Run Detroit for an informational meeting on the training program at the Run Detroit shop on August 26 at 6 p.m. The first workout in the program will start on August 31.
Already got running on lock? Run Detroit also has a number of running groups ready and waiting for new members! From bright and early to late afternoon, advanced runner to the casual jogger, Run Detroit can connect you to other runners around Detroit and help you explore new running routes throughout the city.
