Kickoff begins for 40th Crim

FLINT (WJRT) - (08/22/16) - Last week was about the cars, but this week it's all about the feet in downtown Flint.

The fortieth annual HealthPlus Crim Festival of Races is just days away.

The staff at the Crim Fitness Foundation was hard at work Monday morning, unpacking and sorting and getting ready to take care of the more than 16,000 runners and walkers expected to hit the Bricks on Saturday - and that's not counting all the visitors who will be dropping by for other Crim-related events throughout the week.

"It is here, finally. We are ready for the best Crim ever and that's what's going to happen this week. The preparation and spirit and energy surrounding the Crim this year is just amazing,” said Andy Younger, Crim race director.
