_ The 2018 Tampa Pizza 5k Run

Registration is now open!!

Ready to do something fun for a good cause? This race benefits a local Tampa charity.  100% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to USF Bulls for Kids! USF Bulls for kids is an organization that raises funds for Shriners Hospital for Children - Tampa.  Check them out!

The Tampa Pizza 5k Run is the FIRST race of it's kind in the Tampa area - don't get left out!

Here's 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 (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.

 What do I get?

Every finisher will receive a medal, an opportunity to interact with local sponsors, and an epic great time.

  • A custom pizza medal (image to be posted at a later date, but believe me - you'll like the medal).
  • Pizza King and Queen ceremony directly after the race.
  • Free access to race photos.
  • Pizza is included with your registration!
  • Run for a good cause.

***To maximize the proceeds for our charity sponsor, runners WILL NOT recieve shirts!  Everything else above still applies.***

What's Allowed?

  • Strollers and wheelchairs are allowed on this course, but participants MUST stay to the right of the path to allow for passers.
  • Service animals.
  • Headphones are authorized, but we ask that you keep to a volume that allows you to hear race and park officials.

What's NOT Allowed?
