Recap: The 2010 NYC Pizza Run

A huge thanks to everyone who came out for yesterday’s inaugural NYC Pizza Run in Tompkins Square Park! I’m proud to say that everything went off without a hitch. Sixty-five participants hustled through the 2.25 mile course as they stopped to devour slices of pizza — provided by Pizza By Cer Te — at checkpoints throughout the park. Nobody vomited and everyone finished!First prize went to Phillip Falk who finished in 14:24, nearly two minutes before the next runner crossed the finish line. Although prizes were distributed to the top performers, everyone who participated was a winner. Not only were they able to partake in the first NYC Pizza Run, but they supported the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation where a portion of the proceeds were donated.

Free drinks were poured at Common Ground where the afterparty was held. And whispers filled the room about how next year’s event can be even bigger and better.

But until then… enjoy some sights from the festivities below!!

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
