Whether you choose to run, jog, or walk, there is something for everyone at the free Hamtramck Health Hike, coming up Saturday, May 18, 2024, from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon. Whether it rains or shines, the annual event will be a 5K course winding through city streets. It will start and end at Zussman Park, in front of Hamtramck City Hall, at 3401 Evaline.
The Hamtramck Drug Free Community Coalition (HDFCC), a program of the Piast Institute, encourages the community to join together at the Health Hike in celebration of its 15th annual spring hike in the city. As a complement to the outdoor exercise, participants will have the chance to learn more about healthy, drug-free lifestyles. Be a part of the first 400 people to register and attend to get free giveaways!
HDFCC was founded by the Piast Institute in 2007 to address issues of substance abuse among Hamtramck youth. Its members have worked year-round with community leaders to help tackle substance abuse disorders of alcohol, tobacco, opioids and marijuana through prevention activities. Lara Girdwood is the Executive Director of HDFCC and Shannon Schafer is the HDFCC Director.

The race will be timed again this year and you will be able to check your time online by looking up your bib number and compare your time to others in similar age groups.
