RUNNERS have been urged to sign up for one of Glasgow's most unusual fun runs.

A Pizza Run dedicated to the Italian dish will take place throughout the city in 2019.

The 5K, 10K and family mile events took place across the UK last year and now organisers hope to give Glasgow a "slice of the good life" by hosting an event in the city on June 2.

Runners of all ages are invited to take part in the day, which will kick off with a special warm-up session from Mr Pizza himself.

A DJ will get the crowd going and athletes will celebrate the completion of their conquest with two slices of pizza and pizza-shaped medal.

There will also be prizes for the best fancy dress costume and an after party.

It's not yet known which of city's parks will host the venue, however, it's promised to be close to the city centre.

Tickets are available via Eventbritewith prices starting at £8.50.
