If The LVM is on November 17th next year, Detroit just might be my only get-together with LVM21 group in 2013. Hope Detroit reunion happens.

RE: Detroit Marathon 2013

I would love to run Detroit. Has anyone talked to Ramrod about this yet? I think I'll PM him over on FB

I can advise you. Basically anywhere downtown is pretty safe (as big cities go). MGM Grand is really nice if it's not too pricy for you. Greektown Casino/Hotel is a good location for the race but also pricy. The Holiday Inn Express is probably your best price for downtown that would work. Lots of options in the suburbs for much cheaper if you want to go that route. If you stay in the Warren/Sterling Heights area and are really nice to me I can give you a ride to and from the race (about 30 minute drive).

LOL - not likely to happen as the sponsor is locked into 2013. What you get is a good race for a fair price here. Don't know what the price will be in 2013 but the early bird price has been reasonable in the past.

RE: Detroit Marathon 2013

Hey, just a heads up to everyone: I checked out hotels and the prices are good. The Doubletree is offering $189/night for a big two room suite. I went ahead and reserved just to be on the safe side. Seems like there are lots of good options downtown and that everything is pretty accessible thanks to the People Mover (don't know exactly what that is, but it I like the sound of it!).
