Each spring, a group of merry Detroiters band together to welcome spring and to shoo away any bad juju that accumulated over the previous winter. This year’s Marche du Nain Rouge, as this occasion is known, will take place on Sunday, March 24.

This year, for the first time, there will be a Run du Nain Rouge to kick off the day’s festivities! The 5K will take off from Cass and Canfield at 11 a.m.

Registration is open here until March 15. T-shirt design by Pure Detroit.

Preparez-vous! The top 15 finishers will be rewarded with Nain Rouge merch from City Bird — and the slowest 10 will be punished with gifts selected by the Nain Rouge himself.
