In August of 1977, Michigan House Speaker Bobby Crim and his assistant Lois Craig launched the first Bobby Crim 10 Mile Road Race. Little did they know that they were embarking on a journey that would change the City of Flint forever! In the 39 years since those first days … MORE

    This was my 35th Crim, so I think that says a lot about the quality of the race. Whether you’re challenging the Kenyans with a sub 5 minute pace or plodding along in the back, you’re all treated like stars. A hilly, challenging course. Top notch race management. If you have never run the Crim, you owe it to yourself to run it once. You might find you running another 34!

    I was surprised at how big this race was – the 10-miler definitely draws the biggest crowd! The organization at the beginning of the race was good – they had to be given the delay because of the thunderstorms in the area. Since it was my first time (and first time in Flint), it was nice to see a beautiful city – there was a great amount of crowd support on the run as well. Plenty of aid stations (and ‘other’ stations) to never worry about when the next water station would be. My only real complaint would be about the organization of the finishing chute. There were plenty of volunteers at the chute handing out medals, drinks, bananas, etc. and plenty to be had, but there was a VERY narrow opening for such a big crowd. I think they had plenty of room to work with down Saginaw to spread it out a bit and allow the crowds to keep moving. Absolutely no complaints about this race and I’m sure I’ll do it again. I’ll be ready for the hills in Glendale Hills next year!

    The Crim is my favorite run every year. This year things got a little dicey. Due to thunderstorms, the race start was delayed 1 1/2 hours. This is after the wheelers and veteran runners were already on the course, and the elite runners were called back in the 1st mile. Other than these unusual circumstances, the race is usually well organized. A hilly, challenging course through Flint, Michigan with huge local support. Definitely a race worth traveling for.

    Crim 2005 was my first road race ever to run in. I’ve had the running bug ever since then. I’ve come back numerous times to run in it. Anywhere between 6 -10,000 people show up each year to run in the variety of events. Technically, the race is named after Bobby Crim, a local advocate for running and former state senator, but everyone knows it to be the Coolest Race In Michigan. The race starts and finishes on the bricks of Saginaw Street in downtown Flint showcasing a nice cross-section of the city. Be prepared for the Bradley Hills at the half-way point!

    The Crim always goes above and beyond to bring a spectacular festival of races. The Expo is well organized and easy to maneuver through. The Special Olympians and Michigan Mile are so fun to watch the night before. Then, for the 10 mile, the course is tough at times (Bradley Hills), but there is SO MUCH support and entertainment along the course that keeps a smile on your face. The Crim always has great swag and a fabulous after party.

    Fun course, pretty hilly and definitely watch out for the Brandon hills, but a lot of spectator support throughout and very scenic. Shirts run very small but there are POPSICLES at the finish line which is awesome. Lots of live music.
