Can You Run 2 Miles and Eat 3 Pieces of Pizza at the Same Time?

Everybody loves pizza! Running? Not so much. But when you combine America's favorite food with arguably America's most-hated pastime, it can actually be a lot of fun. 

For the fifth year in a row, New Yorkers will gather in Tompkins Square Park to run a couple miles and stuff their faces iwth pizza along the way. The NYC pizza run is set to take place on Saturday, Sept. 13 and for at $50 entry fee you get a T-shirt, Pizza Run goodie bag, three slices of pizza (to consume during the run, obviously) and a free drink at the after party. Plus, the top finishers get a prize! Is it more pizza? Breadsticks? A roll of Tums?



For a city that’s always on the run, this doesn’t seem like that big of a challenge. Open to all ages, this fun run collects proceeds to go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (a little ironic if you think about it, but we'll take it) and is on the top of our bucket list. Who doesn’t want to run around the city they love and stuff slices of the best pizza in the world into their mouths? Sign us up!
