Get ready pizza fans, for the race of your lives.
Conway Downtown Alive will feature the first-ever Conway Pizza Run on Saturday, October 28 at 10 AM. All you need is four fellow pizza lovers, a good pair of shoes, probably some pants with an elastic waistband and an appetite for winning! And…pepperoni…
Each of the four team members must complete a half mile leg (2 miles total course length) and eat pizza at the designated “eating station”. Teams may divide up the eating as they wish, but to cross the finish line the pizza box must be empty! For a complete list of rules, click here.
Two categories are available for runners: Adult and Family. Costumes are not required but as in everyday life, encouraged! Prizes will be awarded in each category.
“After the success of the Conway Big Wheel Race, we were looking for a fun food event to rotate into its place,” Conway Alive Executive Director Hillary Howard said. “Someone suggested pizza and that everyone loves pizza—the event was born. Besides that, running with a pizza box is pretty funny!”
The entry fee is $20 per team. Advanced registration is required in order to prepare for the event. To register your team for the Conway Pizza Run click here or contact Conway Downtown Alive at 843-248-6260.
The Conway Pizza Race is sponsored by CNB and the City of Conway.
