--- Crim Training Groups---->The people of Flint rally around this yearly ritual to the tune of thousands in training programs for months in preparation, making it a truly year-round event. The crowds look like they too have been in preparation for their day of glory all summer long, turning out in droves to cheer on neighbors as well as runners from far afield (including a contingent of elite runners that have been a hallmark of the classic 10 miler from the beginning). A stone’s throw from Ann Arbor, East Lansing and Detroit, the Michigan Mile in Flint is an especially exciting addition on Friday night, as many of the Midwest’s incredible high school and college runners from the state turn up to try their hand prior to starting fall track and kicking off the scholastic/university running year as well. Let’s just say it feels like the indy 500 for about 5 minutes in Flint, Michigan’s downtown archway… and that feeling continues into Saturday!
