These days, there’s good hustle and there’s bad hustle. The bad kind usually involves heavy traffic and honking horns. The good kind involves a run through a turn-of-the-last-century town named Crossroads Village. This 5K off-road race, now part of the Crim's GrassRoots Race Series, starts and ends in historic downtown Crossroads Village. Every year, this 5K race and walk – and the Little Berry Dash for kids – takes you in and around Michigan’s most scenic race course. It’s like no other race you’ve ever seen. And it’s just around the corner. At your Genesee County Parks.
