Not interested in wearing your running shoes? Fear not, because the race is only half the fun. There will be a free community festival in the park, too, as well as a 1-mile fun run/walk perfect for children and families led by Dr. Karen Hacker, the new director of the Allegheny County Health Department.  Scale the Venture Outdoors climbing wall, relax with free yoga classes, tackle a Pittsburgh Passion obstacle course, and enjoy great food, music and much more.


Come for the race, come for the festival, come out to show your support for clean air. For more information about race sponsorships or participation, contact Sam Thomas.


We look forward to seeing you on October 19 – registration deadline is Friday, October 18 at noon!
