A portion of this event’s proceeds will go to benefit our featured charity, the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance.

Celebrate a day for all women — Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 13, 2018 — by joining your mothers, sisters, daughters, your entire sisterhood in the Suburban Chevrolet Arbor Goddess 5K and showing Ann Arbor how truly divine you are. You can even race with your daughter or mother on our USATF-certified 5K course in the Mother-Daughter category or add a grandmother or granddaughter for our Three Generations of Women category of fabulous females (participants must compete in the 5K for these divisions)! Want a shorter distance in which to showcase your athletic abilities? We have an untimed one-mile fun run option as well. Create a team of your family members, co-workers, neighbors, or friends and enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow females as you wind your way through the city’s scenic downtown district to the finish line. Whatever your age or ability may be, you know you can do this.

While this is a day to celebrate goddesses of all generations,  we also welcome gods (husbands, brothers, fathers, sons, grandfathers, and more), as long as they support our goddesses and this very vital cause (awards are just for the ladies, guys!).

The Suburban Chevrolet Ann Arbor Goddess 5K and Mile Fun Run is part of the Pure Michigan FITness Series of events and is endorsed by the Michigan Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health, and Sports. The 5K Course is USATF certified and both the 5K and mile events are walker friendly!
