You  Know We Had To Do It Again!

   Love Pizza? Of Course you do. Love Fitness? Just Say Yes. Let's combine the two, throw in some music and dancing, and have a great time!

   Come to the 2nd Annual Pizza Fun Run 5K to walk, jog, run, and eat with family and friends for a great cause! A portion of the proceeds will go to Roscoe's Fund, a local non-profit organization who helps with animal rescue and adoption. Last year we raised over $3,800 for charity and received over $3,500 in raffle prized! So you are essentially eating pizza to save puppies. And kitties. And much more. 

   Serving Round Table Pizza, enjoy pizza stops along the route in which you get a slice of cheese or pepperoni before continuing on. (Sorry, no gluten-free options. We don't wanna be TOO healthy now.) DJ Tucci will be there to pump up the crowd before the race begins and at the finish line.Our MC will get everyone stretchin', movin' and groovin' before embarking on an epic pizza journey. Everyone who signs up gets 1 exclusive raffle ticket for a chance at many great prizes! There will also be music at each Pizza Stop. Good doggies welcome. After the run, we will have the raffle with your  chance of winning a prize! After the raffle, head on over to Blu 42 Sports Bar and Grille (Now called Chicken Pie Shop) at 1251 Arroyo Way in Walnut Creek with your  free drink voucher. 

We have proudly partnered with Sports Basement! 

Packet Pickup will be at their Walnut Creek location across from Heather Farm @ 1881 Ygnacio Valley Rd. The day before the race.

 Pickup Time and Date: 

- Friday, May 10 from 6:00-8:00 pm 

Racers will receive 20% off all in-store purchases both Friday and Saturday. 

Just show them your Race Bib! 

Packet Pickups for the day of the race 5/11 will be on-site next to the Start Line at Heather Farm!

   This event is Fun before Run, so it will be a self-timed event. Unfortunately the Guinness Book of World Record's will not be there, so take your time if you are feeling full.  Rain or shine, pizza tastes good no matter the weather. Parking is free, but space is limited. Check our Facebook event page to get all the updates on sponsors, raffle prizes, and additional goodies.

Let's do this!

FAQ

Q. Are dogs allowed on this Fun Run?
A. Great question! Well-behaved dogs are allowed, as long as they are on a leash that is no longer than 6ft. We prefer that you bring your pet only if you plan to participate leisurely in the event (i.e. walking more than running.) Always be respectful of the other participants without dogs as to not get in their way. Sorry, doggies don't get to eat the pizza. And of course, make sure to pick up after your doggo/pupper.

Q. Are children allowed?

A. Kids 5 and up can sign up for the run. Kids 10 and under have special pricing which cost $30- which is reduced from $40 at checkout.  Ages 0-4 are free but must be registered! Sorry no shirts for age 0-4 but they get a race bib! Strollers are permitted but we ask that you start at the back of the pack.

Q. Do I have to eat all the pizza?

A  No! Fun is the most important factor here. If you are feeling full or just not feeling anymore pizza then please just keep on moving and grooving. However, if you are competitively running this race, to qualify you must eat a slice at each pizza stop before moving on.

Q. Do I have to be present to win a raffle prize?

A. Yes! The raffle drawing will be held immediately after the race at at the finish line!  The raffle is exclusively for those who entered the race! So make sure to stay after you finish for your chance to win and to continue to celebrate!
