Race Day Directions, Parking, and Recreation Passports

NOTE: These details are from 2023, and are left here for reference. Updated maps for 2024 will be added as they become available.

Location: The bridge to enter beautiful Belle Isle Park is located at the intersection of Jefferson Ave and East Grand Blvd. 


The start and finish lines will be by the Scott Memorial Fountain, Sunset Dr, Detroit, MI. Parking is conveniently located in a large lot beside the start/finish area.  If this lot fills up, there is parking available along the road around the island.

Belle Isle is a Michigan state park. All vehicles that enter any Michigan state park will need a Recreation Passport. The Recreation Passport is your key to accessing state parks and recreation areas, boating access sites, state forest campgrounds, thousands of miles of trails, and other outdoor spaces – all year long!

The state's parks and recreation system is largely self-supporting. Funds derived from the Recreation Passport go right back into maintaining and improving the outdoor spaces we all love, and protecting natural resources for the next generation.

Check “YES“ for the Recreation Passport when you renew your license plate through the Secretary of State.
