Most runners like pizza.  It's a natural combination, as pizza is full of carbohydrates that runners crave.  The fact that most people just think pizza tastes great is a bonus.  On Thursday, August 9th at 6:30, hundreds of runners and walkers will head out for a 5k and then eat pizza!

The Pizza Challenge 5k starts and finishes outside the downtown Flint YMCA.  There is also a "Little Pepperoni Dash" for kids 4-10 years of age, that is a quarter mile run. 

Racing is a great way to get in some speedwork if you are training for the Crim.  The fact that you get to eat pizza when you finish is a nice reward for going out and pushing the pace a little.
