5k / 10k Pizza Run - Cardiff
--- Due to ongoing concerns regarding Coronavirus the Pizza Run series is taking on a new format. The race organisers will be in touch with you in due course if you have made a booking for this event. ---
Pizza Run is back & we couldn't be more excited to see you! Pizza Run has exploded across the UK in 2020 & we're bringing the pizza party to 20+ locations for a morning of running, pizza, medals & good times.
Upon crossing the finish line, you'll receive the custom designed 2020 Pizza Run medal and two tasty slices of cheesy breaded pizza dreams, or one slice for the children family mile run. Pizza Run's custom 2020 T-shirt's are also available for purchase when entering online & collected on race day. The resident Pizza Run DJ will be playing music until the end, so feel free to stick around, soak up the atmosphere, enjoy your pizza & support other runners as they cross the line to success!

What does participating entail?
Participants will run the either a 10k/5k or 1 mile course.

There will also be a DJ present who will provide music for our Disco warmup & after run pizza party!
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 anyone aged 10+, though those under the age of 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult. 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 includes Pizza!
Are there prizes?
Absolutely! This is still a competition after all, for those who choose to race at least. We'll be excited to announce prizes closer to the event date, keep an eye on our social media and use the links in the menu's above and below to follow us.
Do I have to eat pizza?
Eating pizza is totally optional.
Is there a charitable component to the race?
Yes! We always encourage people to raise money for charity & we may even post your fundraiser through our social media if we spot you doing some good things.
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?
Please refer to you city's event page in the drop down menu above, each city page has event location details.
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?
The event will take place rain or shine. Mother nature can't stop us having a good time & enjoying some pizza fun!
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 DJ Craig. 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!
