As part of the kick-off for the Hanover Tomato Festival, Papa John's is joining the fun and sponsoring the 4K Pizza Run and Relay.

Pizza Run: This fun run is all about family, friends and pizza. The pizza run is an extremely short course, only 4 kilometers or 2.5 miles which any level can complete within an hour. Multiple "pizza stations" will be strategically placed at the start and along the race route where a delicious slice of Papa John's pizza will be waiting for you.

First place finishers in the male and female divisions that complete the 4K course and consume a slice of pizza at each stop will win Papa John's Pizza for a year!

Pizza Relay: This contest consists of four (4) team members. Each member must run or walk approximately 1/2 mile while carrying a pizza box and consume a slice of pizza at each assigned station. The first team to cross the finish line will win pizza for a year and each winning team member will win two free large pizzas.  

New for 2018: Runners come dressed in your Pizza-best for a chance to win pizza for a year!
