Steve’s Run is a Southwestern Michigan College tradition held in honor of Steven Briegel, the son of former SMC president David Briegel. In 1990, a tragic event happened in the life of the College. Steven Briegel died after a 5˝-year battle with cancer. The 22-year-old had graduated fifth in the DUHS Class of 1986 and had golfed and played basketball for the Chieftains. He had also been in band. Two years later, in 1988, Steve graduated from SMC with honors. At the time of his death he was a junior in Ferris State’s program at SMC.

Join us on Saturday, July 28, 2018 to raise money for the fight against cancer and for the Steve Briegel Scholarship by participating in the 10K Run, 5K Run/Walk and a kids Fun Run.

The Original Road and Trail Race will be held on Southwestern Michigan College’s Dowagiac Campus beginning and ending at the front of the David C. Briegel Building.

The 10K course will consist of running through the golf course, cemetery, paved roads, College campus and wooded trails. The 5K Run/Walk will consist of running or walking through the College campus, wooded trails and paved roads. The Fun Run route will be entirely on the SMC paved sidewalk.

Both 10K and 5K courses have been certified by USA Track and Field.
