Let the Summer of Giveaways continue to roll on, and as a Parma girl, I’m pretty excietd about this one! Next up, the 2013 Parma Run/Walk for Pierogies.
The Third Annual Run/Walk for Pierogies will take place at Cuyahoga Community College’s Western Campus on Saturday, July 6, 2013. The event benefits the American Cancer Society (Parma Area Relay for Life) and All Faiths Pantry.
I run this 5K in 2011 and in 2012. In its short existence, we’ve had a blast and the race organizers have taken feedback each year to make the runners experiences better, leaving us with smiling faces and pierogies to eat post run/walk. I even just discovered the race photo gallery from 2012, which includes some awesome shots – including the best race photo I’ve ever taken.
For 2013, Race Director and Parma City Council President Sean Brennan (center in picture) included the creation of a Facebook page for the event (click over and “like” it today!), and if you are super speedy, one of the race medals:
Yes, those are golden pierogies. Do not eat these. Eat the ones from Little Polish Diner.
You know you want to eat some of Parma’s finest cuisine after covering 3.1 miles on your feet, so register over at the hermes.com site today. Online race registration is $20 for adults and $10 for children before Friday, July 5 at 9:00 a.m.
On a side note: You can be really styling by buying a PIP “Will Run For Pierogies” t-shirt from my Spreadshirt T-Shirt shop. (Buy a shirt between now and race day and I’ll donate $2.50 per shirt sold to the race’s charities.)
