Big House 5K: Trail to the Victors

Big House 5K logo

The second annual Trail to the Victors: Big House 5K is an exciting 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, is scheduled for Sunday, April 12, and 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, $96,000 was donated to six local, non-profit beneficiaries. We look forward to again partnering with local beneficiaries and providing them a platform to raise awareness and funds towards their cause.

Check back for information. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, April 12, 2015!
