Run the D with DPD & DMC

October 9, 2021

In Person & Virtual Race


Run the D with DPD and DMC is a race put on in conjunction with the Detroit Police Department, Detroit Public Safety Foundation (DPSF) and the Detroit Medical Center. The goal is to promote healthy living while raising money and awareness for the DPD Fit wellness initiative and the DPSF.

As organizations committed to supporting physical and mental health, the Run the D Race is the perfect opportunity to engage the community in our mission.

This race will include a warm-up and stretching session with trainers from the DMC. The Detroit Police Department’s Training Center will be participating in the run with cadets in the Police Academy. The cadets will be doing cadences/chants to keep everyone inspired as they run.

The 3-mile course starts in beautiful Brush Mall and takes you through portions of downtown Detroit, ending again at Brush Mall.

The DMC is providing free parking in one of their on-site parking structures. Included with the registration fee, runners will receive an official race t-shirt, medal and drinks/snacks after the race. Virtual runners will receive their t-shirt and medal. 

Early registration is $35 and will be available until July 31, 2021. 

Registration cost is $40 after August 1, 2021. Registration is available until the day of the event but there is no guarantee of t-shirts for registrations processed after September 21st. The deadline for virtual runners to register is October 1st. 

Race registration begins at 8:00 a.m. on October 9th and the race will begin at 9:00 a.m.
