The #NABJ18 Motor City 5K Run, Walk, Bike Powered by FCA US kicks off at noon on Saturday, Aug. 4, at Detroit's Hart Plaza.

The 5K run/walk race course moves past the International Memorial to the Detroit Riverwalk, past Cobo Center and Joe Louis Arena, along West Jefferson, and along the riverfront again before turning around to return to Hart Plaza.

The 7.3-mile untimed bike tour passes the Spirit of Detroit statue, the Monument to Joe Louis shaped like a giant fist, and Chrysler House, one of the city's oldest skyscrapers. This building also adjoins the combined offices of the Detroit Free Press and the Detroit News. The course continues to 2nd Baptist Church of Detroit founded by 13 ex-slaves. It is the oldest African-American church in Michigan and served as refuge to runaway slaves making their way to Canada. The course then winds through city streets to the Dequindre Cut greenway, past the edge of the fruit, vegetable and art booths of Eastern Market, working back to Hart Plaza by way of the International Memorial to the Underground Railroad. Optional group photos will be taken at the memorial.

*Twenty-five bikes and helmets will be available for those who need them and register for the bike tour.
