Join us for the Pizza Run Virtual Challenge, presented by the same team that brought you the 5K for Pizza, and powered by the Slice App! It might be a while until we all see each other again, so we wanted to bring all our Pizza Runners together (virtually) & bring you some amazing local slices! Your in app Pizza credits (which you'll receive after completing the challenge) will go directly to local pizza shops upon use, helping them keep the lights on during this challenging time while scoring you free slices. A win for everyone. Upon completion, runners will be sent their giveaway items (i.e., Shirt, Mask, Hat, App Credits) and be eligible for a 15% off discount at JackRabbit Hoboken.

We're currently offering several virtual events to keep you motivated and kick off your summer training; you can race the Virtual 5K, or enter one of three challenges ("Half Pie", "Full Pie", or the "Grand Tour"). You can pick your distance, and you'll have 45 days to complete it starting June 15th. Though you can complete any challenge distance in one run if you'd like, you're only required to complete the total distance of the event you choose by July 31. We will send you a reminder each day to log your runs here on our RunSignup Page, where you can track your progress among fellow runners. Winners of the 5K (M/F) will be awarded a new pair of sneaks from JackRabbit Hoboken. More prizes will be announced at a later date.

We've also chosen "Pizza VS Pandemic" as our charity partner. Why? Because it allows us to support small businesses and aid workers from our couch. We will be matching the first $1000 in funds donated to "Pizza VS Pandemic" through our page, urge you to learn more about them below, and to make a donation (if you can comfortably do so during this time).

*Disclaimer: Please be mindful of where and when you decide to perform your running challenge; follow all local, state, and federal guidelines. Prior to registering, please read our Results Tracking, Product Delivery, and FAQ. You can contact us via the user form below with any questions. Thank you!

Charity Partner

We've chosen "Pizza VS Pandemic" as our charity partner. Why? Because it allows us all to Support small businesses and aid workers from our couch…

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit our communities hard. Care workers are fighting on the frontlines as small businesses struggle to stay open. With a tax deductible donation, you can support both.

Started by Slice Out Hunger, Slice, and Pizza to the Polls, and funded by people like you, Pizza vs. Pandemic is feeding front line care workers by coordinating large orders with independent pizzerias.

A portion of our proceeds will go to this cause. If you'd like to do the same, please click Donate above (100% of these donations will go directly to the charity).

About Us

Our inaugural event in 2019 took runners along the picturesque Hoboken waterfront, and finished with an epic pizza party where we served over 3,000 local slices. In 2019 we were happy to have Napoli's, Benny Tudinos, Torna's, H&S Giovanni's, Two Boots, and Basiles pizza! A full list of participating 2020 vendors will be available soon. In the meantime, kick off your summer training with our Virtual Challenge and devour some slices! Oh, and, save the date for our second annual 5K for Pizza (September 26, 2020)! Hope to connect with you all soon.

Run. Eat Pizza!

Virtual Results Tracking

All virtual mileage and times must be submitted by you here upon completion. It's best you do this daily (or once your run is completed), and we will email you a daily reminder to do so. The whole process takes less than a minute, so don't fret! This will populate the results dashboard, which will allow you to track your daily progress & rankings. It will also let us know who has finished so we can mail you your goodies🍕

For an enhanced Virtual experience, we also highly recommend joining our Strava Club, which is over 1,000 members strong. The Strava app turns every iPhone or Android into a sophisticated running computer, which allows you to track your performance stats, and dive deep into your data afterwards. It's also a social network for athletes and club members, enabling interaction (albeit virtual) amongst your friends and followers, who can share their own workouts, give kudos, and leave comments. Join us, and be sure to share your Strava workouts on social media with the hashtag #5kforpizza for a chance to win a special prize 🍕🍕

Product Delivery
  • Packages will be mailed after you've completed your challenge, but no sooner than June 22nd (a week after registration closes). It is very important that you include your exact mailing address and apartment number when registering.
  • Shirts may have fewer (or additional) sponsor logos on them as they become available.
  • Slice App credits are valid until August 1st, at which point they expire. They will be emailed to you and work as a personal one-time use coupon code.
  • App Credits (or other items) may sell out at any time. If this happens we may, at our discretion, close registration or offer an alternative giveaway.
  • JackRabbit Hoboken is now open for contactless curbside pickup. You will not be eligible for the 15% discount if you cannot physically go to the store for contactless curbside pickup.
