Touring The Crim Course - Mile 7
Welcome back, this time to mile 7 of the Crim route. Perhaps it’s my architectural heritage or maybe it’s the welcoming shade covered Hawthorne Dr. but the next two miles are my favorite part of the Crim route.
Just kidding! Yes from mile 6 to 10 the course drops, but along mile 7 on beautiful Hawthorne and Parkside Avenues you will see your share of rolling hills, mostly shaded route and the many huge stately homes of Flint! Stay to the left side of the shady Hawthorne Ave.
The views are nice, many neighbors are out to support you, there will be a band playing as you approach the mile mark, but do not get too distracted. This is a very critical stretch to pay attention to the tangents! This is especially true once you make the 90 degree left turn onto Parkside Ave. Here the shade is gone as your view opens up to the site of Swartz Creek Golf Course as you run along towards mile 8.
Thanks for following my posts. I invite you to also peek into my other pages of The Running Architect website too!
