What does participating entail?
Participants will run the either a 10k, 5k or 1 mile course. There will be a “pizza station” set up in the race village where participants will be able to collect their tasty pizza after completing the run, with their pizza wrist band! There will also be a DJ present who will provide music during the disco warmup & after the run.

How do I register?

Do I have to register online beforehand?
Yes. All participants must register beforehand. Please note that space is extremely limited and we expect the run's to sell out well in advance. As such, we advise all interested parties to register through the site as a priority to avoid disappointment.
Who can participate?
The event is open to all, though those under the age of 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult and under 10's must run with an adult guardian. Both adults and children must have purchased entry. Although some people take this run competitively, many use fancy dress & come for a relaxed fun run too. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate at their own pace, it's all about having fun, enjoying the event & celebrating a healthy balanced lifestyle.... that can include Pizza!

Eating pizza is totally optional.
Is there a charitable component to the race?

Can I get a refund?
Unfortunately, we cannot offer a refund once you have signed up to an event. This is mainly due to the logistics of running an event of this size. However, you can swap the name on the ticket, just see below. Anyway, you'd be crazy to miss it, and you're not crazy, so see you there.
Can I exchange my ticket with someone else?
You are more than welcome to swap the name on your ticket if you cannot make it to the event. Just email us with both your names & a description of which names we are swapping in & out. (Due to popular demand, and in order to give everyone a fair chance, ticket touting is forbidden. Any tickets suspected of being touted will be cancelled.)
Will the race be timed?
The race won't be timed, we're all about having fun, taking the pressure off & encouraging participation in a healthy balanced lifestyle. However, you're more than welcome to wear a stop-watch & see how you get on against the clock.
How do I get to the race?
Can I come and watch?
Of course. Even if you don’t want to participate… and don’t know anyone participating, you’ll still have a fun time checking out the action & enjoying the good time vibes.
What if it rains?
Will there be a place to store personal items at the event?
Although there will be a Bag Drop area to put your items, we cannot guarantee that they will be secure. We suggest leaving all valuables at home. Even better – bring a friend to hold on to your stuff while you run!
Where is the pizza from?
The pizza you’ll be eating during the race will be provided by professional pizza chef's with insurances, all relevant certifications & a tonne of experience in creating & providing top quality pizza. It'll make your taste buds tingle with happiness!
Where is the after-party?
Once you cross the finish line you'll be able to enjoy our feel good afterparty provided by our very own Pizza Run DJ. So go collect your pizza from our Pizza Station and sit out on the grass and enjoy some feel good music and hopefully some sunshine ☀️ 👌
What if I have allergies or dietary restrictions?
All of the pizza contains cheese and gluten. We really want to add Vegan & Gluten Free options and are working hard to include both in the future, but unfortunately our suppliers can't help us just yet. We'll keep working on this, don't you worry!
Can I exchange my 10k ticket for a 5k ticket?
Just drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to facilitate this!
How old do my children have to be to take part in the Family Mile?
Children aged 9 years & under will require an adult to run with them. Anyone older than 9 can run on their own. However, anyone aged 16 or under must be accompanied at the event by an adult.
