2012 Detroit Marathon: Events, time and schedule for the weekend

Quinn Rooney

The 35th annual Detroit Marathon and all the events that come with it gets underway this weekend before the big race on Sunday morning.

The Detroit Free Press Talmer Bank Marathon, in its 35th year of existence, welcomes runners from all over the world for a vast assortment of events this weekend, headlining with the big 26.2 mile race Sunday morning.

The marathon itself, which has hit its capacity at 4,830 runners, starts at 7 a.m. ET on Sunday and will take runners through areas such as downtown Detroit and some of the city's historic neighborhoods.

Two half-marathon courses are set up, one that allows runner the chance to cross the border into Windsor, Ontario, while the other remains fully in the United States.

Additionally, five-person relay teams will also run the full marathon course, with each member of a team running a leg consisting of between three and seven miles. Both the half-marathon races and five-person relay teams will begin at 7 a.m. ET on Sunday.

A disabilities division is also offered, and a 5K run/walk begins Sunday morning at 7:25 a.m. ET.
