CHICAGO, June 7, 2022 – Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, based in Northbrook, Ill., is teaming up with RaceMaker Productions to host the inaugural Pizza Run Indy. On Sunday, July 31, 2022, the community is invited to Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria in Broad Ripple, located at 6320 Ferguson St. in Indianapolis, to run, eat and celebrate. Pizza Run Indy, the second race in the Naptown Grub Runs series, will begin at 10 a.m. and a portion of the proceeds from the 5K Run/Walk will benefit Gleaners Food Bank.

The route will begin and end at Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria and offers participants the opportunity to hit the streets and enjoy the historic and artsy Broad Ripple Village. The course winds through the heart of the Village, looping west around residential sections and returning to Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria for a tasty finish line celebration where participants will enjoy a complimentary slice of the Malnati family’s legendary deep dish pizza, an ice-cold beverage, a custom Pizza Run Indy finisher medal and live music.

“We’re excited to partner with RaceMaker Productions to host Pizza Run Indy as this is an incredible opportunity to share our legendary deep dish pizza with fellow food enthusiasts in Indy,” said Marc Malnati, owner of Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria. “Once participants cross the finish line, we look forward to treating them to a well-earned slice of our delicious pizza and showcasing our beautiful location in Broad Ripple, just north of the Central Canal Trail.”

“We are stoked to host Pizza Run Indy at Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria. Participants are up for a double treat that is the one-of-a-kind Lou Malnati’s pizza, and racing through the super unique Broad Ripple Village. Live Jams post-race, ice cold drinks, and games…we could think of no better Sunday Funday!” said Lee O’Connor, founder of RaceMaker Productions.
