UK Braced For Big Slice Of Pizza Run

The NYC Pizza Run

First Medoc then the fantastic events from TeamOA (Pieathlon, Ginathlon and Chocathlon) and now Pizza Run UK, the latest event that invites participants to combine two of their favourite things – pizza and running.

Set to roll out across six locations – Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, London and Manchester – from next month, the event allows runners to enjoy the delights of delicious pizza either during or after the 5k.

The concept, which started in New York and has proven to be a success, is all about encouraging a healthy, balanced lifestyle that can include your favourite treats.

Race co-ordinator Ben Walsh said: “We are really proud and excited to launch the Pizza Run UK events and promoting the possibilities of a healthy balanced lifestyle that does include life’s treats. We’re looking forward to seeing lots of smiles and people having fun with their fitness.”

Participants are encouraged to dress up as they see fit with a prize awarded to the most outlandish – expect to see giant food costumes and even pizza-themed face paint. The Pizza Run events begins in Bristol on 28 April, then Cardiff (29 April), Manchester (12 May), Leeds (19 May) and London (20 May). More info is available here
