Big House 5K

Fri April 16 - Sun April 18

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, the 2021 Big House 5K will take place as a virtual race that you can run or walk at the location of your choice. Participants will receive a race packet by mail that includes a race shirt, race bib, race medal & replica Go Blue M Club Supports You banner.

Participants will run or walk the 5K distance on their own, or with their family, and share it via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #BigHouse5K.
Upon completion, participants can submit their times to receive a certificate of completion.

In 2020, more than 7,000 virtual race participants raised $107,000 for our six local, non-profit beneficiaries. We are excited to partner with six local beneficiaries this year to provide a platform on which they can raise awareness and funds in support of their cause.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions at

We look forward to seeing where you jump up and touch the banner on race weekend. Go Blue!

Race Beneficiaries

For 2021, a guaranteed $12 of each participants' registration fee will be split evenly and donated to the six official non-profit race beneficiaries. The chosen beneficiaries address key areas of need including food insecurity, social services, education and literacy, and medical research - all of which demonstrated an additional need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
