Happy heat wave, Cleveland! Call me crazy, but I love when this weather breaks — it makes me want to put on my sneakers and get outside. I almost got out for my long-awaited first towpath bike ride of the year yesterday!! And as much as I keep saying I’ve retired my runners, I may need to lace up those shoes and get Baby Brenna in her BOB stroller the first Saturday in July for the 7th Annual Parma Run/Walk for Pierogies.
The 7th Annual Parma Run-Walk for Pierogies will take at Cuyahoga Community College’s Western Campus on Saturday, July 1 at 8:30 am. (Nothing like a fun run to get me going on my birthday, right?!) This year’s event benefits the Parma Senior High School Hockey Team, the Parma Charitable Fund, Parma Boy Scout Troop 221 and Tri-C Scholarships.
From that time I talked WhyCLE? into running a 5K by promising her one of her favorite foods.
Here’s the schedule for race morning:
- Registration and Race Day Packet Pick Up: 7:00am (cash or check only if you’re registering race morning)
- 5K starts at 8:30am
- 1 Mile starts at 8:35am
- Pierogi eating commences once you cross the finish line!
Here’s what it will cost you to participate that morning:
- 5K Run: $20 pre-registration, $25 race day
- 1 Mile Fun Walk: $20 pre-registration, $25 race day
- Ages 11 and under: $10 pre-registration, $10 race day
What do you get?
- Short sleeve cotton t-shirt (the first 600 pre-registered are guaranteed a t-shirt!)
- Post race food and drinks
- Awards to top finishers
- B-Tag timing results
So what are you waiting for?!
