The start of the run begins in historic downtown Dowagiac and ends at Lions Park. The event is in conjunction with the Dowagiac’s Summer in the City.
In addition, the race is a preseason training experience for high school cross country teams from Michigan and Indiana. There is a reduced entry fee for team members with the coach running free.
All Steve’s Run finishers will receive a T-shirt and more than 200 stained glass awards will be given to the top finishers in each age group.
The Original Road and Trail Race was renamed “Steve’s Run” in memory of Steven Briegel, a Southwestern Michigan College honors graduate who lost his fight against cancer in 1990. All proceeds, including 100 percent of the pledge monies, are donated to SMC’s Steven Briegel Scholarship Fund and the Mayo Clinic Cancer Research Fund.
Entry information and online registration can be found at stevesrun.swmich.edu or by calling Southwestern Michigan College at (269) 782-1209.
