Johnson Law is the Official Pace Team Sponsor of the 38th Annual Detroit Free Press/Talmer Bank Marathon.


image003 Johnson Law is proud to be the Official Pace Team Sponsor of the 38th Annual Detroit Free Press/Talmer Bank Marathon. One of Michigan’s most anticipated events, the marathon takes place October 17–18th.

Over 60,000 spectators and participants are expected to take over the streets of Detroit and Windsor for the only road race to cross international borders twice, and the only one with an “Underwater Mile” through the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel.

Attorney and Founder, Ven Johnson says,“Being part of such an amazing event, right in the heart of Detroit, is an honor. We recognize the dedication and endurance it takes to race, and sponsoring the Pace Team is a perfect way to show our support.”

The Johnson Law Pace Team consists of forty experienced runners who will help thousands of participants reach their marathon goal. Pacers will be supporting runners in the full and half marathons as they try to run their personal best, qualify for the Boston Marathon, or for many first time participants, get to the finish line. Pace Team Director, Jim Crist commented, “We have been pacing the Detroit Marathon since 2002. The Pace Team is one of the many runner amenities that the Detroit Marathon provides, and runners of all abilities can take advantage of the service. We’re dedicated to helping runners have the best day possible.”

Johnson Law will also have a booth at the Health and Fitness Expo, October 16-17 at Cobo Hall, where members of the firm will be greeting participants and handing out free, “Fighter” t-shirts. Johnson plans to stop by as well. “Events like this are what make this city so special,” says Johnson, “the people who come together to make this race happen are a true example of the fighting spirit of Detroit.”
