The University of Michigan Athletics Department and U-M health professionals are closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and the resulting impact on our communities. In alignment with the University’s protocols, the 2021 Big House 5K will take place as a virtual race that you can run or walk at the location of your choice.
Registration opens Tuesday (Dec. 15) and is open to all ages.
The race capacity is 8,000 participants. Once this number is reached, registration will close and no additional registration spots will be made available. Race packets will be mailed to participants in April 2021. There will be no in-person packet pickup.
Participants will run or walk the 5K distance on their own, or with their family, April 16-18, 2021. We’re asking participants to share photos from their finish line via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #BigHouse5K.
