The Crim Race is an initiative started by a non-profit
The Crim Fitness Foundation of CFF, formerly known as The Crim Road Races, Inc. and Crim Festival of Races, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit. The foundation promotes fitness in Genesee County, Michigan and runs the Crim Festival of Races.
Bobby Crim, speaker of the state house in Michigan, and Lois Craig, Crim’s assistant began the Crim as a 10-mile race in 1977. In 1985 the race was incorporated as The Crim Road Race, Inc. to give more support to charities like the Genesee County Literacy Coalitions, The Crim Young Development Program, the Shelter of Flint, Fair Winds Girl Scouts, plus Big Brother/Big Sisters of Greater Flint. In 2005, the Crim Festival of Races, Inc. changed its name to the Crim Fitness Foundation, Inc.
