            Atwood Races History

            Kettering University’s Atwood Stadium Races have a long history in Flint. 

            Previously, the races were known as the Tuuri, named after Flint pediatrician Arthur L. Tuuri. The Tuuri races began in 1979 and served as a fundraiser for the Children’s Miracle Network. In 2011, the Tuuri became the Atwood Stadium Races, which kept many of the beloved elements of the Tuuri course and the fact that runners could do the “duo” – run both the 5K and 10K.

            Beginning in 2011, the Atwood Stadium Races were managed by Brian and Dorie Barkey and a team of volunteers. The races served as fundraisers for various local charities, including Carriage Town Ministries. The race course changed to include a unique finish -- right at the 50 yard line of historic Atwood Stadium.

            In 2018, the races were taken over by Kettering University. Race logistics are now managed by the HAP Crim Festival of Races team, and another unique element was added to the course -- a lap around Kettering University’s Mobility Research Center, an autonomous vehicle lab and proving ground.

            Proceeds from the race support Atwood Stadium.
