The Crim Festival of Races is an annual road running event with several races and walking events. The original distance was 10 miles (16 kilometers) and is the marque race as "The Crim" with its infamous Bradley Hills and blue line to keep runners on course. The Crim has been held in August in Flint, Michigan since 1977. It draws runners from around the world from countries such as Kenya, Russia, and Ukraine. The race attracts approximately 50,000 people each year. The festival is one of the Flint Parade of Festivals.
The races and walks are Michigan Mile Series, 5K, 5 Mile, 10 Mile, the Teddy Bear Trot and Lois Craig Invitational Special Olympics Race.
The race has hosted the United States national 10-mile championship race on two occasions. The 2009 women's U.S. title was won by Molly Huddle, while the 2010 men's title was won by Fasil Bizuneh.
