In August of 1977, Michigan House Speaker Bobby Crim and his assistant Lois Craig launched the first Bobby Crim 10 Mile Road Race.
Due to the current State of Michigan COVID-19 prohibition of large gatherings and the uncertainty of when this prohibition will be lifted, the Crim Fitness Foundation Board of Directors has voted to cancel the 2020 HAP Crim Festival of Races is pleased to introduce the first ever HAP Virtual Crim to take place in August of 2020. The decision to postpone the 44th running of the Crim to 2021 was made with the health of the Crim’s participants, volunteers, sponsors and the greater Flint community as the Crim’s primary concern.
