“One of the many benefits of combining HAP and HealthPlus is being able to leverage strong partnerships to foster the health and wellness of the communities we serve,” said Tom Spring, director of wellness and community outreach at HAP. “We’re delighted to carry on this rich tradition and look forward to building an even stronger bond with the Crim Fitness Foundation in Flint.”
The Crim Festival of Races attracts more than 60,000 runners, walkers, volunteers and spectators to downtown Flint. Members of HAP and HealthPlus (now part of the HAP family) are invited to this historic event and take advantage of a $5 discount on the race fee. If you’re a member, log in to your hap.org or HealthPlus.org account to get your discount code.
“As two organizations dedicated to the well-being of our community, it’s no coincidence the Crim and HealthPlus have had such as long history of collaboration,” says Andrew Young, race director at the Crim Fitness Foundation.
Not a runner? Not a problem!
Walkers are the fastest growing category of participants in every Crim race. The three-day event has something for everyone. The Crim Fitness Expo runs throughout the festival and features vendors with fitness gear, sponsor booths, giveaways, healthy snacks and more. The Festival Lot in downtown Flint features entertainment the Friday night before the races, as well as the popular after-race party on Saturday. Circle Aug. 25-27 on your calendar, and don't miss Crim's milestone event this year.
After the Crim, line up for the HAP Brooksie Way
The HAP Brooksie Way in Rochester, now in its ninth year, features a half-marathon, 10K, 5K and Lil' Brooksie Kids Race. The races start and finish on the beautiful Oakland University campus. The half-marathon course includes part of the scenic Paint Creek Trail before taking participants to the challenging Dutton Road hills.
