Calling all Superheroes!
The Superhero 5k is a fun afternoon of events for superheroes of all ages and endurance: a 5k run/walk, a 1 mile run/walk and Kids' Dash (5 and under) at Hudson Mills Metropark in Dexter. All proceeds benefit the scholarship fund of Girls on the Run of Southeastern Michigan, a non-profit after school program that encourages positive emotional, social, mental and physical development to girls in 3rd-8th grades. In 2016, Girls on the Run of Southeastern Michigan provided 519 scholarships to girls who demonstrated financial need.

This year's event is our FIFTH annual Superhero 5k! Come celebrate with us on Sunday, October 22nd- the events begin at 2:00 pm!

Event day registration, packet pick-up and the costume contest check-in will open at 1:00 pm; the Kids' Dash (5 and under) begins at 2:00 pm, 1 Mile starts at 2:05 pm, and the 5k blasts off at 2:30 pm!

All participants who registered before September 23rd will be guaranteed their selected size for a Superhero 5k t-shirt. For registrations received after Friday, September 23rd, event t-shirts are available on a first come, first served basis, while supplies last.

All 5k and 1 mile finishers will receive a Superhero medal and an official chip time. The Kids' Dash (5 and under) finishers will receive a Superhero toy duck.

Our Superhero costume contest will have over 20 prizes for individual and team costumes! Wear a costume that displays your unique superpowers, dress as your favorite superhero, or gather your friends and dress as your favorite crime-fighting team!
