Pizza Challenge 5k August 9th at Flint YMCA
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.
