Group Against Smog and Pollution’s Athletes United for Healthy Air campaign is excited to announce the inaugural Clean Air Dash and Festival, brought to Pittsburgh with the support of the Breathe Project.
This 5K race event will be held October 19 at the South Side Riverfront Park along the Three Rivers Heritage Trail. Click here to see the approximate start/stop and festival location.
The USATF-certified race will be on a flat, fast course suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Runners will enjoy a scenic and competitive race through one of the city’s many dedicated, historic greenways. Take your time and enjoy the course–or sprint for a PR on the mostly level route. Click here to register for the race.

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!
