Big House 5K: Trail to the Victors

Sun April 7, 2019 Ann Arbor, MI US 48109 Directions RaceJoy Ready

The sixth annual Big House 5K: Trail to the Victors presented by Toyota is an exciting running and walking event in Ann Arbor, MI. Beyond intercollegiate athletics, our students, faculty and staff also regularly participate in dozens of intramural, club sport and fitness activities as well as actively support our local campus and county community.

The run/walk, owned and managed by the University of Michigan Athletic Department working in conjunction with the Ann Arbor Track Club, will be held on Sunday, April 7th, 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 2018, $158,000 was donated to six local, non-profit beneficiaries. We look forward to partnering with Child Care Network, Digital Inclusion, Growing Hope, Michigan Foster Care Closet, Michigan Medicine - Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP), and Telling It. The intent of our race is to provide our beneficiaries a platform to raise awareness and funds toward their cause.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions at

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, April 7th, 2018!
