The race you know and love is back for 2021. Join us on beautiful Belle Isle for Escape to Belle Isle!

The safety of our runners, walkers, families, staff, and volunteers is of the utmost importance. With the recent update to the State of Michigan's guidelines for outdoor gatherings, we will be hosting this event live, outdoors, and in person! We ask that you wear a mask at the start and finish line where people are gathered, but feel free to take it off on the course and do your best to keep space between you and other athletes. 

If you feel more comfortable with a virtual event, that's still an option! We will mail your shirt and medal to you before the event.  

Every event registration and every dollar you fundraise helps Ronald McDonald House Charities Detroit provide a home away from home for families while their child is hospitalized. The pandemic has been difficult for everyone, but especially for families with a hospitalized child.

For a sick kid, there's nothing better than the comfort of having mom and dad at their side. For mom and dad, there's comfort, support, and a place to call home when they have to travel for their critically ill or injured child to receive medical care.
