Organiser's Description

Steve's Run
July 14, 2023  |  6:00 p.m.  |  Downtown Dowagiac
Join us in the fight against cancer!
In the last 16 years alone, Steve's Run has raised over $180,000 for cancer research and student scholarships (split evenly).
To continue the tradition, the 49th Steve's Run will once again start and end in Downtown Dowagiac. Named the Original Road and Trail Race, Steve's Run will take participants through the paved roads of Dowagiac, a golf course, a cemetery, and the Southwestern Michigan College wooded trails.
We hope you'll join us to raise money for these important causes.
About Steve's Run
Steve's Run is named in honor of Steven Briegel, the son of former Southwestern Michigan College president David Briegel. Steve died in 1990 at the age of 22 after a five-and-a-half-year battle with cancer. He was a 1986 graduate of Dowagiac Union High School and had played basketball, golf, and in the band for the Chieftains. He graduated with honors from SMC and was a junior in the Ferris at SMC program at the time of his death.
After Steve’s passing, SMC’s annual Road and Trail Race, which began in 1972, was renamed Steve’s Run and was dedicated to honor all who have fought or are still fighting cancer, with proceeds being split evenly between cancer research and the Steven Briegel Scholarship.
SMC continues to host Steve’s Run yearly with the support of the City of Dowagiac and through generous donations from community partners.
Fire Up Course Signs
Honor your loved one by purchasing a "Fire Up" course sign. This custom yard sign will be placed along the 5k course (10k course will follow this path as well) to remind runners of the people that have been impacted by cancer. Proceeds from the signs will be donated to cancer research. Head to the navigation bar at the top and click "Store."
