About This Activity

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!

Here's how it works:

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.

 What do I get?

Every finisher will receive a medal, t-shirt, an opportunity to interact with local sponsors, and an epic great time.

  • A custom pizza medal (image to be posted at a later date, but believe me - you'll like the medal).
  • An awesome race shirt to show off!
  • Pizza King and Queen ceremony directly after the race.
  • Free access to race photos.
  • Pizza is included with your registration!

What's Allowed?

  • Strollers and wheelchairs are allowed on this course, but participants MUST stay to the right of the path to allow for passers.
  • Service animals.
  • Headphones are authorized, but we ask that you keep to a volume that allows you to hear race and park officials.

What's NOT Allowed?

  • Pets (except certified service animals).
  • Double-wide (or wider) strollers.  At some points on the course, the path isn't wide enough for three adults.
  • Skateboards, bicycles, tricycles, skates, etc...
  • Bandits. If you're not wearing a bib at the finish line, you won't get a medal!

***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!***

Allergy and Dietary Restrictions.

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.
