Hamtramck holds first ever Paczki Run
Event prepares for Paczki Day next week
Hamtramck hosted the first-ever Paczki Run Saturday and hundreds of participants turned out.
The 5K run was presented by the Hamtramck Downtown Development Authority and Tour de Troit.
The event drew people into downtown Hamtramck, which will be busy next Tuesday for the annual Paczki Day feast featuring calorie-laden donuts filled with cream or jelly.
While the runners were able to burn off calories, they were able to put those calories right back on after crossing the finish line.
Each person finishing the race was given a complimentary paczki and a beer.
