“Bridging the Gap Bringing Communities Together” was a vision in May, 2015 in hopes to encourage neighboring suburban joggers/walkers to run in Detroit.

Bridging the Gap Bringing Communities Together is Long Overdue.....
Great idea and long awakening of our amazing city.
Excited that the race is downtown.
Dr. T. Lynn Young
Race Director for "Bridging the Gap Bringing Communities Together".
We are excited this year to sponsor our first VIRTUAL Walk/Run due to the pandemic. Many running events throughout USA have canceled, but we decided to “Stay In and Stay Moving” by providing a safe solution for our runners and walkers. Most importantly, this virtual event will enable us to continue to support Human Trafficking organizations, such as Sanctum House, whose mission is to empower female survivors with the necessary skills to “Move Forward” in life.
Race Course - Does not apply to virtual race
Starting from the Riverfront Dr. (at the carousel/bike shop) the 10K, 5K, 1 mile walk begins by heading east along Detroit River Walk, traversing along the entire Riverfront walk extending from the Ambassador Bridge. The International Riverfront encompasses a cruise ship passenger terminal and dock, a marina, a multitude of parks, restaurants, retail shops, skyscrapers, and high rise residential areas along with Cobo Convention/Exhibition Center and Joe Louis Arena. The Marriott at the Renaissance Center and the Hart Plaza are also along the International Riverfront Walk. The course continues along the river providing runners with a view of Canada toward the finish line.
