Join us for the second annual 5K for Pizza on Saturday September 25, 2021! The flat and fast course will take runners along the picturesque Hoboken waterfront, and conclude at our finish line festival where all participants will get to enjoy some epic (and free) local slices. The sponsors for this year's pizza festival are Napoli's, Impostos, H&S Giovanni's, Benny Tudinos, Torna's, Tony Boloney's, and Basiles! A 1 mile course will be offered for those looking for the fastest way to pizza. Registrants will be eligible for a minimum of 3 slices.
And that's not all!
All runners will also recieve a race themed t-shirt, sport commemorative Tyvek bibs, and be able to enjoy other sponsored giveaways at the finish (i.e., drinks, snacks, etc.). Of course, we'll be sure to have professional photography on staff to capture the day's events for the gram, which we will make available soon after the event. The event will also be USA Track & Field sanctioned & professionally chip timed. Overall winners will receive a free pair of shoes from JackRabbit Hoboken!
Held on September 25th, the 1 Mile run will begin at 9:30 AM and the 5K will start at 10:00 AM.
To limit our impact on the environment, Packet Pickup will be bagless. Your "packet" will include the race t-shirt you selected at checkout, your race bib, and some safety pins.
Pre-Race Packet pickup will be held on Friday September 24th between 6-8 PM at JackRabbit Hoboken. The address is "127 Washington St, Hoboken, NJ 07030".
Race day packet pickup will begin at 8:15 AM at the race check-in area (the north-east corner of Pier A Park).
Both the 1 mile and 5K events will start and finish at "Pier A Park" in Hoboken NJ. The check-in and festival area (i.e., packet pickup, delicious pizza) will be on the north-east corner of the Pier.
For drop off (e.g., Uber) you should utilize "100 Sinatra Dr, Hoboken, NJ 07030" as your GPS address. Though, be mindful that course roads will be closing around 9:00 AM and being dropped off a block or so from the venue may be best.
For those taking public transit (e.g., Path, Lightrail), Pier A Park is a 1 or 2 minute walk north out of Hoboken Terminal.
For those driving themselves or otherwise in need of parking for their driver / friends / fam, metered street parking is available on first come first serve basis. Hoboken Municipal Garage B is the closest garage to the venue, and likely the most convenient parking solution; the address for this parking facility is "28 2nd street, Hoboken, NJ, 07030".
You are encouraged not to bring bags to the race, but we will offer bag check for $5 via exact cash or Venmo. Card readers will not be on site.

All virtual mileage and times must be submitted by you here upon completion. It's best you do this daily (or once your run is completed), and we will email you a daily reminder to do so. The whole process takes less than a minute, so don't fret! This will populate the results dashboard, which will allow you to track your daily progress & rankings. It will also let us know who has finished so we can mail you your goodies🍕
For an enhanced Virtual experience, we also highly recommend joining our Strava Club, which is over 1,000 members strong. The Strava app turns every iPhone or Android into a sophisticated running computer, which allows you to track your performance stats, and dive deep into your data afterwards. It's also a social network for athletes and club members, enabling interaction (albeit virtual) amongst your friends and followers, who can share their own workouts, give kudos, and leave comments. Join us, and be sure to share your Strava workouts on social media with the hashtag #5kforpizza for a chance to win a special prize 🍕🍕
