Big House 5K

To the Big House 5K participants -

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, we have cancelled the 2020 Big House 5K.

Each year, Michigan Athletics sends all proceeds from our Big House 5K to provide transformational donations to our six non-profit beneficiaries. This year’s beneficiaries are Freedom House Detroit, Huron River Watershed Council, Peer Advisors for Veteran Education, SOS Community Services, UM Addiction Center, and Washtenaw Literacy - and we are working hard to honor our commitment to the beneficiaries and to our participants.

In the interest of "social distancing," we are encouraging our registrants to support our beneficiaries and participate in our Virtual #BigHouse5K.

  • Participants will be mailed their medal and their shirt (anticipated arrival is early April; additional communication will be provided once a more firm timeline is determined)
  • We encourage you to run or walk the 5K distance on your own, or with your family, and share it via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #BigHouse5K
  • On April 19th, we will select 10 participants who post with #Big House5K to receive a complimentary entry for the 2021 race

Our beneficiaries are grateful for your support. We also commend our partners at Toyota for their continued support of this event by donating all of their employees’ registrations to our beneficiaries.

The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, and beneficiaries is paramount and we appreciate your flexibility and hope that you will join together with our virtual community as we navigate these evolving times.

We look forward to supporting our 2020 beneficiaries and planning a successful event in 2021.

If you are unable to participate in the virtual race, and would like to request a refund, please do so by completing this form. Registrants interested in a refund will have until the end of the day on Tuesday, March 24 to make your request. If you have additional questions, please contact bighouse5k@umich.edu.

For more information regarding COVID-19 and its impact please visit the U-M COVID-19 webpage.
