DETROIT -- Local and visiting NCAA basketball fans can actively partake in the excitement of NCAA® Men’s Final Four® weekend by participating in the annual Road to the Final Four 5K Run /Walk on Saturday, April 4 at 8:30 a.m.

The route begins at the corner of Washington and Jefferson in downtown Detroit, outside Cobo Center. The course incorporates Detroit’s international riverfront by utilizing the RiverWalk, where the finish line is located just past the riverboat, also near Cobo Center.

The registration fee is $20 if postmarked by March 28. After that date, the fee is increased to $25. The fee includes a long-sleeved Nike T-shirt for the first 1,000 runners, free admission to Hoop City® refreshed by Coca-Cola®, which takes place at Cobo Center April 3-6, and a chance to win 2009 NCAA Men's Final Four tickets for all participants. Proceeds will benefit the United Way of Southeastern Michigan Early Learning Communities, which provide resources to ensure that children are properly prepared to begin school. Race participants are encouraged to bring a new or gently-used children’s book to race registration.

Participants can register ahead of time online at www.ncaa.com/finalfour. On-site registration begins at 7 a.m. in Michigan Hall at Cobo Center.
