The 35th annual Detroit Free Press Marathon takes place on both sides of the border, Sunday. This year 4,830 runners will take part.
The Detroit Free Press Marathon makes its way through Windsor — over the Ambassador Bridge and along Riverside Drive — between Huron Church and Goyeau from approximately 7:30 am to 9:45 am. Windsorites are encouraged to line the marathon route to cheer runners on.
The Detroit-Windsor tunnel will be closed to all vehicular traffic between 7am until 10am. The first tunnel bus trip from Windsor will be at 10am and the bus will short turn – drop off at tunnel platform next to Mariner’s Church – until the streets in downtown Detroit are open.
For Canadian participants attending the Marathon, a bus will leave the Downtown Windsor Transit Terminal for Detroit at 5:30 am and at 5:45 am. Buses will return from Detroit at 11am and 2pm departing from Cobo Hall. The fare is $4 each way. The Transit Terminal will open at 5:00 am for participants to purchase tickets.
Transit service in Windsor will be disrupted on many routes during the race. You can see those here.
