They say everything is better with pizza, right? And it seems like people will do anything to make running a mile suck less (we don’t hate that). So why not add pizza to running a mile? Genius!
But while this sounds like a light-hearted event, there is real cause behind this. As their site says, the first ever Pizza Mile “came about in response to an unfortunate crime last year and proved to be an incredible show of support from the community.”
They had such a great time with it last year that they are bringing it back! Here’s how it will go:
Starting at Pasqually’s, runners will eat a slice of pizza then run a lap around the block for a total of three laps, eating a slice of pizza at every lap. (Think beer mile, but with Pizza!) You are free to participate as a team, walk, run, or crawl. This is all about having fun!
They do ask for runners to help contribute to the pizza cost which they expect to be around $5.
So lace up your running shoes and join a run that is sure to be a one in a kind experience!
