About Steve's Run

Steven Briegel

Steve's run is a Southwestern Michigan College tradition held in honor of Steven Briegel, who died of cancer at the age of 22. Steve was the son of former SMC President David Briegel.

All proceeds are donated evenly between cancer research and the Steven Briegel Scholarship.

The Original Road and Trail Race will be held on Southwestern Michigan College's Dowagiac campus, beginning and ending at the building named for Steve's father, the David C. Briegel Building.

The 10K course will consist of running through the golf course, cemetery and college campus on paved roads and wooded trails. The 5K Run/Walk will consist of running or walking through the college campus on wooded trails and paved roads. The Fun Run routes will be entirely on paved roads. Both 10K and 5K courses have been certified by USA Track and Field.
