CrimFit Campus Training Program at UM-Flint


Due to the current State of Michigan COVID-19 prohibition of large gatherings and the uncertainty of when this prohibition will be lifted, The Crim Fitness Foundation Board of Directors has voted to cancel the 2020 HAP Crim Festival of Races is pleased to introduce the first ever HAP Virtual Crim to take place in August of 2020. The decision to postpone the 44th running of the Crim was made with the health of the Crim’s participants, volunteers, sponsors and the greater Flint community as the Crim’s primary concern.

The CrimFit Training Program will continue as long as groups abide by the Governor’s directive of gatherings of no more than 10 persons and adhere to social distancing guidelines.

UPDATE: First Ever HAP Virtual Crim!

Your registration in the CrimFit Training Program now includes an entry into the first ever HAP Virtual Crim! While we won’t be racing on the bricks this summer, you can still train with your group and get ready for your Crim race.

In a difficult but necessary decision, the Crim Fitness Foundation’s Board of Directors voted to postpone the 44th HAP Crim Festival of Races to 2021. The good news is, we can still ensure everyone’s safety and provide opportunities for our community to be physically active, through the CrimFit Training Program and the HAP Virtual Crim.
