New Yorkers are invited to an unusual race around the city
You may have heard of obstacle races, marathons and other competitions, but what about a pizza race? Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Park will host an unusual 5K race that will be a real treat for lovers of pizza and physical activity, Time Out reports.
The NYC Pizza Run, in support of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, will feature two checkpoints where participants will have to eat a slice of delicious pizza before continuing on their run. Pizza for the event will be prepared at the Table 87 restaurant, “The Home Of the Coal Oven Slice,” and will serve not only as a tasty treat, but also as an unusual challenge for the runners.
Each participant will return home with a T-shirt and a souvenir bag that will remind them of this unforgettable event.
After completing the race, participants will be able to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of the German beer garden DSK, located nearby, for free. So, even if running a 5K with pizza in your belly isn’t your thing, you can come cheer on the runners and enjoy the fun atmosphere of this unique event.
