George McIntyre said it on the air today before my shift started. "The Crim is like Christmas for Stu Allen." That's probably true for a whole bunch of other runners and walkers from around Flint. We get pretty pumped up for this day every year.
The 36th running of the Crim Festival of Races is Saturday, August 25th. This internationally known road race is one of the few events where Olympians and Everyday Joes can line up side-by-side. Over ten thousand runners and walkers took part in the Crim 10-miler last year.
The Crim Festival of Races is less than two weeks away. If you haven't gotten around to signing up yet, you can still save a few bucks before paying top dollar at the race expo. Save $10 on your race entry by signing up online before August 22 at 2 pm.
The Crim Festival of Races is getting closer (less than 3 weeks) and this Sunday morning (Aug 12) you can join other runners for a dress rehearsal on the Crim course. It's not a race, just a practice run on the course.
