Your time is up you Nasty Devil! Run the race before the Marche. Over 300 years ago, an evil was discovered in and around the city. This ‘evil’ was said to have been a Nain Rouge, or the “red dwarf of Detroit.” This malevolent spirit cursed generations. It wasn’t until La Marche du Nain Rouge, held the Saturday closest to the spring Equinox, did the people of Detroit come together to abolish the Le Nain Rouge.MARCH INFO: marchdunainrouge.com RUN INFO: tour-de-troit.org
Above t-shirt designed by Pure Detroit. The Marche du Nain Rogue was named one of 100 things you MUST do in Detroit in 2013. Adding the run will be sure to get us to the top 25 in 2014. 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.
