Rockin' Marathon Relay
Team up with some friends and take on a marathon! The Rockin' Marathon Relay offers the opportunity to gather a team to conquer a full marathon, all the while enjoying music and a fun party atmosphere at the relay exchange zone! Without a doubt, this will the most fun you'll ever have running a marathon!
Here's how Rockin' Marathon Relay works: every course is set up as a loop of only 1.2 - 2.2 miles, so it's all contained in a small area (not like your typical marathon that can spread across an entire city). You and your friends create a team of 2, 3, or 4 members and then you alternate relay laps (one time around the small loop course) until the full marathon distance is completed. While one team member is out taking their turn on a lap around the course, the rest of the team is having a good time at the relay exchange zone. The exchange zone is one big party - enjoy music, food, and socialize with teammates and competitors alike - but be ready for when you next take the hand-off for your team!
For those of you who are bold enough to try the full marathon on a loop course alone, you can run the Rockin' Marathon Relay solo!
The Orthopedic Surgery Trauma Division at Henry Ford Hospital treats patients with a diverse array of musculoskeletal injuries. Thanks to the generous contributions from physicians, nurses, hospital staff, patients, and community members, the Orthopedic Trauma Patient Needs Fund was created. This fund assists under- and un-insured patients receive medical equipment and services necessary to achieve a full recovery. Your donations will play a vital role in helping us get our patients back up and running!
