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!

This is an EVENING event. It starts at 2pm and ends at 4pm. 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)"

Why? Because everyone will run for pizza, but more importantly - donations raised in this event goes to Sassy Caps, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  Read more about them below!

How it works

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".

Who's supplying the pizza?

We ONLY select local pizzerias.  We believe in supporting the local economy and will therefore choose a small-business pizzeria.  This year, the lucky pizzeria is non other than Farley's Pizza!

These guys are located at:

2025 E. Arbors Drive Suite 210, Charlotte NC 28262

The Charity.

This event is benefitting Sassy Caps! They're a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Sassy Caps is a nationwide network of volunteers that make soft, fun hats and seatbelt pillows to donate to people receiving cancer treatment. They also sponsor and host local, free "Day of Sass" spa makeovers for women with cancer. Their mission statement is "to empower volunteers to connect with local cancer communities through service and love, and to make the fight against cancer a little bit sassier".

Become a Fundraiser!

Help them reach their fundraising goal!!!  Become a fundraiser or join their team and make an impact on the community of those who could benefit from comfortable and cute hats while undergoing cancer treatment. You don't have to run the event to join or create a fundraising team (but you'd be missing out on the fun!).

Pacers
