Free Press/TCF Bank Marathon

Sun., Oct. 20
Downtown Detroit Woodward Ave., Detroit Downtown Detroit


Detroit might be the Motor City, but more than 26,000 runners from across the globe come here to travel by foot instead. The annual Detroit Free Press/TCF Bank Marathon returns for its 42nd year to give runners of all stripes an international workout, as the race traverses into Canada, taking runners over the Ambassador Bridge and through the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel, with stops in Corktown, Mexicantown, Indian Village, and Belle Isle along the way. Aside from the marathon, there’s a half-marathon, a 1-mile, a 5k, a relay event, a Disabilities Division, and a Meijer Kids Fun Run, and the event is expected to raise more than $2 million for more than 45 charities. Things kick off with a Health and Fitness Expo (that doubles as HQ for participants) from 2-8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18 at TCF Center with nearly 100 vendors, and continues Saturday from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. An afterparty for participants and friends and family runs from 8 a.m.–2 p.m. at the corner of Fort Street and Third Street. Advance registration is closed, but people can sign up for U.S.-only events in person at TCF Center. Plus, new this year, photos will be taken and provided to runners free of charge, because pics or it didn’t happen, right?

Humble and Human: Impressionist Era Treasures from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Detroit Institute of Arts, an Exhibition in Honor of Ralph C. Wilson, Jr.

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Jan. 5
Detroit Institute of Arts 5200 Woodward Ave., Detroit Midtown


If you haven’t had a chance to behold the beauty of the Detroit Institute of Arts’ new Impressionist-era exhibition, there’s still time. The museum announced last week that it will now run through Sunday, Jan. 5, 2020. The show, which opened in June, was originally supposed to come down in October. The museum says it made the decision to keep it open due to near-record attendance: more than 100,000 people visited the exhibition in its first 13 weeks, and 200,000 are expected by the new closing date, which will make it the highest-attended exhibition at the DIA in nearly 20 years. The show features 44 works by Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters like Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and more. Many of the works on display had never been shown in Detroit. It honors the late art collector Ralph C. Wilson, Jr., the founder and owner of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills who lived in the Detroit area for much of his life. 313-833-7900

The fascinating story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, a woman “computer” living in an age when women could neither vote nor express an original idea. Despite not being allowed to touch a telescope, Leavitt and her colleagues at the Harvard Observatory made ground-breaking discoveries about the universe that remain vital over a century later. Through fierce sisterly love, early feminism and universe revealing science this beautiful play reveals how a group of extraordinary women changed the way we understand both the heavens and the Earth.
