LOVE pizza? Love running? Ever thought about combining the two?

Well now you can get a pizza the action as Pizza Run UK heads to Manchester. 

Runners taking on the 5k course will be rewarded with slices of pizza along the way which participants can either collect en route or after the run.

The unusual race first took place on the east coast of USA but is coming to six cities in England this year including Bristol, Cardiff, London, Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester.

A spokesman added: "Expect to see fancy dress at the event and feel free to wear your own.

"This is suitable for all ages and abilities and will not be timed but as a laugh you will get a pizza-themed medal.

"Afterwards, we'll be dancing with the DJ, taking squad photos and meeting runners from your area of all abilities and backgrounds.

"Together we'll celebrate pizza."

The Manchester event takes place at Heaton Park on May 12 from 11am. 

Tickets are £15 plus a £1.73 fee and you can find them here
