All right party people, we're going to Gojjo this week and then we'll really be mixing it up for the next few weeks.
Next week will be the FIFTH edition of the absolutely inadvisable Pizza Mile which will take place in Clark Park! That's right, in just one week, you can make the poor decision of eating pizza and then trying to run as fast as possible (and doing so not once, but four times) to secure your place in the group of people who have sold out their common sense for a shot at glory.
But for this week, our runs start at Clark Park (44th and Baltimore) and end at Gojjo (4540 Baltimore Ave)!
The Pizza Mile came about in response to a break-in at Pasqually's in 2016 and proved to be an incredible show of support from the community.
This year, we're doing it again because we love Pasqually's and we love dumb races. Last year's shift in location worked so well, we're making it permanent. We'll plan to meet in Clark Park where WPR gathers for our weekly Wednesday night runs.
Starting at the NW corner of the Clark Park, participants will eat a small slice of pizza and run a lap through the park and repeat... All together, participants run four laps and nom four slices of pizza. You can participate with a team, walk, run, or crawl. It's all for fun and continues to benefit Pasqually's, run by some of our favorite people.
First place awards for the men's and women's winner, naturally.
We'll be asking for a $5 contribution from the participants to cover cost of the pizza and we'll have beers for $5 a piece!
Runs End at Gojjo 4540 Baltimore Ave (Bring ID and $)
