The East Village's mad pizza dash
Now in its fourth year, the NYC Pizza Run has quickly become a local’s favorite. How could it not though? A 2.25-mile run with three checkpoints at which you scarf down a slice of pizza and run right back into the race. We all know carbo-loading is important right before a race, but who says it should stop there? Forget the New York Marathon, serious eaters, this is your time to shine. Bonus: with your ticket price, you'll receive an official NYC Pizza Run t-shirt, a race bib, three slices of pizza to be consumed during the race, a pizza gift bag to be distributed following the race, and a free drink at a local bar after the race. Also, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF). Shwoo, that's a lot of awesomeness. General admission. This event is all ages. Please arrive on time or the race will start without you. Sorry, but no refunds for latecomers.
"Grab, bite, chomp, chew, drink, swish, swallow, run."
