History of the race

The myPay 10k originated in Ann Arbor in 2017 in celebration of myPay Solutions, our external payroll processing department, signing 10,000 accounts. Every year it has grown in size to promote healthy habits and support our local community. This year, we have invited our other offices to join us in our celebration of health and support each other's communities and/or causes that resonate with us most.

Race registration is always free of charge, and while a donation is not required, it is appreciated! If you are unable to participate but would like to donate, or participate and make multiple donations, you can do that here.

We hope to see you on race day!
