Martian Marathon, full marathon runners
5153 people (5k – 1116, 10k – 1704, half – 1952, full – 381) took part in this year’s Martian Marathon. The event started and ended at Dearborn’s Ford Field. A more detailed breakdown with run info can be found here. Basically, the Martians chased the humans, the humans ran like champions, and everyone had a good (if not a little cold) time. Here’s a few photos from the event.
Awesome outfits! (the Martian was chasing the full marathon runners off the line)

“What’s that? Of course I just finished the race and don’t even have hat hair.”

It was a sad day for human/martian diplomacy!
