NEW THIS YEAR: FREE PARKING & SHUTTLE SERVICES TO AND FROM START AREA/FINISH AREAS

Parking lots in and around the downtown area fill up early. This year we highly recommend using our free and easily accessible parking and shuttle service.

This is how it works. Park your vehicle (free of charge) at the McLaren Medical Testing Lab located at 4400 S. Saginaw Street (on the southwest corner of Atherton & Saginaw Streets), approximately 2.5 miles from the start/finish. Shuttle buses will transport participants and spectators to City Hall (Saginaw and Seventh Streets) approximately 2-3 blocks from the start/finish. The shuttle service begins at 6:00AM from McLaren and will run a continuous loop until 3:00PM from City Hall.

Parking is available in several locations around the downtown area on Crim morning.

Coming into Flint on Flushing Road/Robert T. Longway, or via 475, the University of Michigan William White lot offers a substantial number of parking spaces. This lot is located on the corner of Saginaw St. and Robert T. Longway, across from Rally’s.

Crim participants arriving from the west can find parking in the Carriage Town area, located just west of the Flint River, off of Grand Traverse St. A footbridge connects that side of the river with the downtown – start line area.

From the south and I-69, parking is available in the Flint City Hall area, near the corner of Saginaw and Court Street.

Additional parking spaces are found scattered throughout the downtown area.
