In 2021, the Parma Run-Walk for Pierogies will turn ten years old!  We are planning some fun things this year to thank our participants for supporting the race over the years.  Many charities and community projects have benefited from the proceeds.  Guaranteed to the first 600 participants: a well-stuffed goodie bag, our signature t-shirt, and a certificate for free pierogies courtesy of Parma’s own Perla Pierogies.  We will also have icey, wet towels to cool you off right after the finish line.  The top three women and men in our many age categories will win our famous pierogie necklace award.  Our event takes place on the very flat Tri-C West Campus conveniently located at 11000 West Pleasant Valley Road.  We hope you will join us on Saturday, July 3.  Please contact Parma City Council President and Race Director Sean Patrick Brennan for questions, sponsorships, etc. at or 440-885-8091.

If the 2021 in-person events are canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all participants will be given the option of deferring to 2022 or participating virtually. This race will not be postponed to a future date.
