Michigan Monster Dash

Event Details

Where is the Michigan Monster Dash?

All events will begin and end on the Playfield on the northwest side of Kensington Metro Park in Milford, Michigan.

Where and when is packet pickup?

Early Packet Pickup will be at Dick’s Sporting Good in Novi on 12 Mile Road from 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Friday, October 29th.

Dicks will provide all runners a 20% coupon good that day for all merchandise in the store.

Morning-Of packet pickup will also be available. However to avoid being rushed and standing in long lines, we suggest you come to Dick’s on Friday!

Will there be same-day reigtration?


However, in addition to the slightly increased cost to register late, we can’t guarantee a shirt or medal on race-day. All late-registered swag will be mailed when we receive the final shipment.

What are the start times?

The event start times will be staggered:

  • Half Marathon: 9:00 am
  • 10k: 9:15 am
  • 5k: 9:30 am
  • 1k Kids Dash: 11:00 am

Will all finishers receive a shirt and medal?


Our shirts are high-quality, long sleeve, unisex tech shirts.
The 2020 medal was a beautiful 3″ art-work worthy of any runner’s medal collection. 

We will post the 2021 designs as soon as they become available.

What does it cost to enter the park?

If you do not already have an annual pass, the one-day rate to enter the park is $10.00 per vehicle. You can pay as you enter, or you can pre-pay when you register for the Monster Dash. If you pre-pay, your name will be added to a list that the gate agents will have on the morning of the 30th.

Will the events be chipped timed?

The Half Marathon, 10k and 5k will be chipped timed. 

While the Kids 1k is not chipped timed, all participants will still receive a numbered bib and a finishers medal.

Will there be yummy food at the finish line?

Oh yes!

Our finish-line snacks in 2019 were a huge hit! And we plan to do even better this year. We are grateful to our sponsors who donated the food.

Where should we park?

Parking will be at the Maple Beach parking lot. From there it is a short walk up to the staring line on the play field.
