Avoid Skipping Recovery
Listening to your body is key to avoiding injury and burnout. Your body can actually grow stronger when you are at rest. The process of training includes workouts that are strategically placed along with rest days, which provides stimulation during the activity and recovery when you are at rest. If you are new to running, it is important not to push yourself to hard. Injuries can pop up when training advances too quickly. If your body is giving you warning signs, listen and take the extra time off so you can fully adjust and recover to meet your specific fitness needs.
Registration for the April 7th, 2019 event opens July 1st, 2018.
We're doing it again! The Tampa Pizza 5k Run was an incredibly fun and delicious event that crowned the first place finishers! John Rubida and Nicole Miranda are the current Pizza King and Queen. Who's going take the title on April 7th, 2019??
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)" (<---- they get a special award!).
Why? Because everyone will run for pizza.
This course utilizes the Al Lopez Park large and small loop.
Every finisher will receive a medal, an opportunity to interact with local sponsors, and an epic great time.
***For obvious reasons, this event is not certified. Runners WILL NOT receive a certified time. Bibs will not have chips on them. This is a FUN RUN!***
As much as we'd like, we CANNOT accomodate for allergy or dietary restrictions such as gluten-free pizza. All of the pizza and food will contain cheese and gluten. At this time, we cannot make special accomodations for individual runners and spectators.
