The run before the big day (Fat Tuesday)!  Due to COVID-19, we have decided to ensure everyone's safety and make the PaczKi Run virtual in 2021.   

Feel better about eating those paczki, or run the route to scout out your favorite place to purchase them. This year you can don your PaczKi Run shirt, run your favorite 5K course with polka music in your ears and then celebrate with a paczek from one of Hamtramck's famous bakeries.   Na Zdrowie! 

The run before the big day (Fat Tuesday)! Feel better about eating those paczki, or run the route to scout out your favorite place to purchase them.
