Here’s Wonderful News for People Who Can Jog and Eat Pizza at the Same Time

This times four.

Brooklyn Running Co. and Williamsburg Pizza will host the #NYCPizzaMile next Wednesday, June 25, at 8 p.m. in McCarren Park. Think the Beer Mile, where athletes are also required polish off a beer at every quarter mile, except in this case it's a slice of hot pizza. (Unlucky runners who throw up before finishing the race must run a "penalty lap.") Perhaps because it's probably going to be 110 degrees next Wednesday and this all seems a little inadvisable, the race is free to enter. The winner gets a $30 Brooklyn Running Co. gift card and free pizza pie, so there's that.
