Event Of The Month: The New York City Pizza Run


Brooklyn, NY | September 16, 2018

Love to run? Love to eat pizza? Ever wanted to do both at the same time? Look no further than the 9th annual New York City Pizza 5K! This event is just one of the millions of events around the country that Gravy Analytics analyzes to deliver its real-world consumer intelligence.

The race was founded in 2009 by Jason Feirman, who decided to combine two of New York City’s core characteristics – eating pizza and racing around – into a one-of-a-kind New York City experience. In case you’re into more than just running and eating pizza, a portion of the proceeds from the race is donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). The JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes research.
