It started in Tampa. We did it in Spokane. And now we're doing it in Orlando! The Orlando 5k Pizza Run is here!
Here's how it works:
This is an EVENING event. It starts at 4pm and ends at 6pm. 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 course utilizes the trails at Bill Fredrick Park.
*****This is IMPORTANT! Access to the park requires a $4 per vehicle charge. This charge is NOT part of your registration. Please make sure you understand this. To help ease the cost, we're absorbing the processing fee of the event (you're still on the hook for the event fee and taxes!)*****
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!
Strollers and wheelchairs are allowed on this course, but participants MUST stay to the right of the path to allow for passers.
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.
