FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

"I say keep walking keep jogging; whatever," said Bobby Crim.

That’s Crim’s advice to Harry Binder, 91, and Darrell McKee, 81. The two received the first ever Lionheart awards for the oldest participants in the Crim.

Binder will walk, while the playful McKee will run the 10 mile course with one target in his sight.

"I am glad to see there are some doctors here because we have a lot of old people – like Bobby Crim," McKee said.

Several generations of runners were represented at Wednesday's Crim Kick Off, including Grand Blanc's Grand Fisher heading to Stanford on a track and field scholarship. 

The popularity of the race has been growing. Race organizers said they are on pace to break last year’s record for participation of 250,000 people attending.
