Registration for this event is now open!
It started in Tampa. We did it in Spokane and Orlando. And now we're doing it in Charlotte! The Charlotte 5k Pizza Run is here!
This is an EVENING event. It starts at 3pm and ends at 5pm. Every runner will consume TWO slices of pizza, but NOT all at once. You'll eat one slice 5 minutes before the start time, and consume your second slice at the "pizza station", about half-way through the course.
The first runner to cross the finish line will be crowned "The Pizza King (or Queen)" (<---- they get a special award!).
Why? Because everyone will run for pizza.
This event will happen at Mallard Creek Park.
Every finisher will receive a medal, t-shirt, an opportunity to interact with local sponsors, and an epic great time.
***For obvious reasons, this event is not certified. Runners WILL NOT receive a certified time. Bibs will not have chips on them. This is a FUN RUN!***
As much as we'd like to, we CANNOT accomodate for allergy or dietary restrictions such as gluten-free pizza. All of the pizza and food will contain cheese and gluten. At this time, we cannot make special accomodations for individual runners and spectators.
The first male and female runner to follow the Royalty Rules and cross the finish line will get crowned the 2018 Charlotte Pizza King and Pizza Queen!! They will hold this title until an incumbent beats them out the following year!
No cheating! You cannot run and eat at the same time.
You don't HAVE to eat the pizza, but if you want to compete for the crowns, you have the follow the rules above. ALL runners will receive a finisher's medal and t-shirt.
Watch the video and see how much fun this event is!
The artwork is still being designed. We'll post the drafts as soon as our team apply the finishing touches!
We ONLY select local pizzerias. We believe in supporting the local economy and will therefore choose a small-business pizzeria. This year, the lucky pizzeria is non other than Farley's Pizza!
These guys are located at:
2025 E. Arbors Drive Suite 210, Charlotte NC 28262
This event is benefitting Sassy Caps! They're a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Sassy Caps is a nationwide network of volunteers that make soft, fun hats and seatbelt pillows to donate to people receiving cancer treatment. They also sponsor and host local, free "Day of Sass" spa makeovers for women with cancer. Their mission statement is "to empower volunteers to connect with local cancer communities through service and love, and to make the fight against cancer a little bit sassier".
Help them reach their fundraising goal!!! Become a fundraiser or join their team and make an impact on the community of those who could benefit from comfortable and cute hats while undergoing cancer treatment. You don't have to run the event to join or create a fundraising team (but you'd be missing out on the fun!).
