Westfield Pizza Run 2019
Now in its 18th year, the Westfield 5K and Pizza Extravaganza feeds your healthy competition with a reward of pizza at the end. More than 2400 runners compete each year for fun and prizes. But you don’t have to be a runner in order to participate. Spectators help encourage competitors along their 5K journey to the finish line. Stay entertained with live music from Michael Craig’s 8 ’til When and the Groove Sharks.
The 5K course starts out on E Broad St. Then, it winds itself around the downtown area. Finally, it ends up back where it started on E Broad St. Two water stations ensure all runners remain hydrated throughout the race. Download a complete course map, including water stops, here.
This is a USATF-certified course (USA Track & Field). Clocks keep official time at each mile marker of the course. Register for the Westfield Pizza Run online right now to receive a commemorative tech shirt. Anyone interested in participating in the 5K must register before midnight on June 22nd. Otherwise, you sit on the sidelines and cheer people on this year.
The top three male and female overall participants, Westfield residents, and finishers in each age group receive awards. Age groups are split up into age 10 and under, age 85 and over, and then divided up every five years in between (11-15, 16-20, 21-25, etc.). Awards will be handed out along with the pizza directly after the race.
